Lamppost Leaner




Walked up Silcoates St at about 11pm, thought there was a roadsign with a coat draped over it leaned against the lamppost. Did a double take when I realised it was a person standing absolutely still and upright, (presumably) leaning their forehead on the lamppost. Long skirt, possibly a shawl over their head. Seemed feminine. They did not move in several minutes. Not an area full of drunk people and it was the middle of the week. I didn’t see a face as I was too terrified to investigate in case they reacted to me.
