Daz and His Dog

Daz sat motionless on the old park wall. Tired and cold he was wrapped up all of his layers on. It had been a cold night for early November. His old rucksack at his feet, not much in it. Just some plastic sheets, a sleeping bag and blanket. The dog standing near him gave a long tired stretch reaching forwards.

Her little red creations could be seen all over town. Red was the only colour she worked with.…
