This was a neighbor of mine some years ago, when I lived in Somerville. His name unfortunately escapes me.
He lived in an assisted living home, was a poet and had schizophrenia which he seemed to have under control.
I forget where he was from but he spoke perfect French and English.
He used to sell his poems around Davis Square. I moved and have never seen him again.
He started asking for money and I gave him some when I could, than that's all our relationship seemed to turn into.
I did enjoy my time with him still.
