Emblazoned across the station’s once beige tiles, a colourful scene was now depicted: A man stood with his trousers around his ankles, arm outstretched to deposit a coin into the public payphone. The artist had positioned the subject in such a way that if someone wanted to make use of the wall’s electrical socket, they would be forced to plug directly into the man’s naked backside. The crowd of onlookers wasted no time in obliging.
“Bloody kids,” the security guard muttered to the grey haired woman beside him.
“Quite,” she replied, smiling.
Her bag jangled softly as she walked away.
