Do you know what people do with those cups? They empty them of branded cider and then, because the loos are half a mile away and it will mean pushing their way through a meta-organism that will steal their spot, they widdle in those cups. Then they set the brimming-chalice carefully on the mud and pretend it isn’t their’s. But, and here the horror begins, small children, innocent to the laziness of the grown-up crowd, skip through the throng scooping up cups into ever growing, oozing towers. These can be exchanged at little offices for ten whole pence. It’s like the Thames two-hundred years ago, or Dharavi today. Child-laborers sifting through sewage.
The only black pigeon in Paris. Blessed with gift of foresight he is fully aware of his own mortality.

Not even I know his name. He is nameless. He may not be a he.
