Blinded by the light, transferred by the metro

Sleeping at the Pasteur Metro

I was in a rush from somewhere to somewhere, and then saw this guy sleeping beside the chairs in the Metro station.
It looked so graphic, the black leather and pants with the white hands tucked in between his legs for warmth, alongside the white teeth of the chairs in the black mouth of the huge ad.
His horizontal position vs. the chairs that invite a vertical one.

While I drew him, I had to take long breaths, since Metros passed in both directions between us.

No one sat on the chairs while he was there.

A security guard gently woke him up, and left, he woke up, opened his eyes, looked around, lay in the same position for two more minutes, and left (there was a Metro passing, I didn't see where he want).

When he disappeared, the newly-arriving passengers sat in the chairs...
