clubs pubs and the usual backstreet no go’s

There a man in a white suit, sitting in a chair at the bottom of a building soon to be knocked down.

Around him hang smashed vinyl records that he has arranged into meaning and placed carefully strategically and skilfully behind glass, within their wooden borders. 

I’v seen him in clubs pubs and the usual backstreet no go’s. I’v seen him in flats down in Kensal rise and at his birthday in a Jamaican family. Recently he was taken to pick up objects he found and paint them . Before that i’v seen him arrange images to place on album sleeves, T shirts, prints. For much of the time that’s what he does. Paint, order, tap, cut, nail and find.  

For the moment he’s sitting on the ground floor of a building, having found some quiet in central London. The building will soon be knocked down.
