DANNY

Prized Possession : Phone

 

Born and raised in Rhode Island, Danny has been in Denver for two years and homeless for one. Up front, with an east-coast swagger, he explains his life’s collapse. “I started shooting heroin. I’m not shy or ashamed. I used to do it as a kid. Got off it for fifteen years. Started fucking around with it again. One thing leads to another and you’re hooked,” he discloses. Danny is again struggling with his addiction after a recent stint in jail due to “selling the stuff.” His days on the streets consist of “hanging out, hustling, pointing someone in the right direction.” While upbeat, he does proclaim “it’s cold as shit!” Of his fellow homeless, he concludes, “there’s a lot of good people, a lot of shitheads, but the good outweigh the bad.”

 

Prized Possession: “My phone. It’s the only way I have to get in touch with everyone. I’m transient. I didn’t have it for like five days and I felt lost.”
