Josiane Keller - Chico King painted smoking a joint with chrysalis
Chico King (16)

“Well, it was my choice, because I don’t really get along with my mom, so I made the choice to leave.
Food I provide for through p:ear, panhandling money and food kick-downs. I sleep in door ways and on occasion in motels. Safety is my friends, myself and brace knuckles. Health: however possible. Seasons by sticking through. Money: panhandling, and however possible. I hang out with my friends.

I was walking the 101 highway and I had a cigarette, a weed pipe, no lighter, money to buy a lighter. Then I looked on the ground and saw a box of matches. I opened it and find two chronic nugs, so beautiful, so I just kept walking and came across a store, so I bought a lighter.

I left the store, went under a bridge and smoked my pot and then my cigarette.
My day was perfect!!!”
