I think it's interesting. You see two things here, the guy's connectedness
with strangers, he could just stay there forever, and also his isolation.
"They had not noticed the magic."

If you like this you should check out Tom Waits' reading of it, collected
on his Orphans album. His voice is perfect for the tone of the poem.

These are words of what could come to be a real drifter. I have always seen
who I really am as a drifter. It's a way of life that is really living and
seeing the world. money doesn't really bring happiness. I don't need alot
of food either. I could live underneatha bridge and feel more happy than
at my own home with my own folks who can't even come to understand who I
am. It's sad..but it will all go on. It's still just as beautiful every
passing moment..no matter how shitty life or the moment seems. It will
always float right on.
