His nickname was ‘Gravity.’

I never asked him how he achieved this moniker… I assumed he gave it to himself as a sort of self tribute to the strongest force on earth which I again guessed is how he viewed himself.

He peddled drugs with a partner in crime at a warehouse on Front Street that had been converted into a homeless shelter for both men and women that was called ‘Street City.’ I called them, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum.

I walked away after a brief 2 years visit that ended in 2001 and never saw Gravity again.
