Homemade homeless porn

When one runs through the city of Pittsburgh, there are certain sights that he expects to see — cars, pedestrians, yellow bridges, and so on.  Contrast those wholesome, everyday visuals with the image on the left.

Yes, on a sunny but blustery day this past week, as I was about to scale the pedestrian steps of the West End Bridge and continue my 12-mile run (or 4-mile; same thing), I noticed a piece of paper swirling around in the wind.  At first glance, I thought “Big deal,” and almost proceeded up the steps.  Thankfully, however — in what I truly believe was an act of Divine Intervention (Fact:  God wants me to write about this stuff) — I caught a glimpse of the paper’s contents and headed over to investigate. 

Drawn on the paper was a woman who clearly preferred the company of homeless men vs. homeowners; you could read it in her eyes/other parts.  She was completely naked (censored in the photo above to keep BurghLife relatively family-friendly), arms up and caressing her hair in a “come-hither” stance that this author has seen hundreds of times (on cable). 

It quickly occurred to me that this had to be homemade homeless porn, given its proximity to what appeared to be a makeshift residence.  And, being a visual kind of guy myself, I understood.  Seeing is way better than imagining. 

I left that piece of paper there (no, that’s not littering, jagoff), and continued on my running journey, deeply moved by the experience…much as I hope you will be by this uplifting and inspirational story.  (Unless it was just the creation of some horny pre-teen kid who’s Internet was down from all the G-D wind.)

 

Other random notes:   The dirt stain on the drawing was sadly my doing — the first photo I took turned out empty because of the damn wind, so I had to step on the piece of art to keep it in place, then quickly snap another shot.  My apologies to the artist.  And speaking of that guy…I didn’t notice this until I uploaded the pic today, but he added his signature and a date to that mofo!  The name is too messy for me to make out, but the date is 3-31-12 — this is fresh art, people!
