Walking In - 7/25/12
Tourists set up the shot of the Beatles walking thru the crosswalk
Barking in German
Tourists shoot the mural at Columbus and Broadway
A random corner sticker with ducks and Nofowl.com
"If at first you dont succeed, call an airstike" - Banksy - Columbus and Broadway, 2012
The Broadway tunnel vomits neat streams of cars from the east portal
they rain down upon us hapless victims
We swarm into broad cool cloudy streets
wondering what's it all for anyway
Broken old Chinese men on the wrong side of Columbus
A block over on Montgomery you could hear a pin drop
Rows of naked bolts protrude into the air starving for painted toes in open shoes
The useful underclass struts to work in a timeless pigeon parade
To slave away in obscurity.
No one can say
Only there is this.
Lunatics on loud rumbling motorbikes whip the pedestrians into a panic
Finally they break and charge into the streets
A car tries to run one down
Horn blaring and now i see shes going to die
She's going to die and we're going to watch her die
We all see this.
Horn blaring the car cuts her off
she panics and breaks stride and heads back the way she came
Somehow the car misses her
Why'd she try to cross anyway?
It said Do Not Walk.
Pigeons pair off and flutter about like lost butterflies
between overhead wires and office buildings
But not the gulls
The gulls come in alone and they go out alone
but with a sleek stride
an intense purpose
so that you might follow that one right there
if only you could.
