Thomas Knight is a man who lives in an alleyway. Rats and cockroaches crawl in the darkness of night. Dumpsters and trashcans surround him. He lives between two buildings and is blissful where he resides. Thomas has access to free food and clothing. The man does not panhandle, but from time to time, people give him spare change. However, he refuses the currency.

Thomas’s favorite day of the week is Friday nights. The streets becomes crowded with pedestrians. He always thanks them for their support. A homeless man who has outsmarted the system by having a food place on his left and a thrift store on his right. Many people take items for granted. Food is throw out during the day and there is a happy man with a warm meal and second hand clothing to comfort him.
