but when i got off the V train
waiting for my F
wondering if i should just walk the last stop...
a big (kinda cute) drunk black guy starts the play on me
braying and slurring "i was supposed to catch the train.."
i thanked my lucky iPod
and just waved my hands in front of my face
adn walked away
in time to greet the F train coming into land...
and when i got off that train
passing through the turn styles out
drunk homeless guy spattered at the bottom of the stairs
one cop bends down, extends his hand to help the guy up..
and how many others did i see today?
i felt like there were hunderds on the Uppe West Side
as i walked up from 96th
had breakfast with the Children of Light
and then walked back down to 83rd or 4th or 5th...
but maybe it was just the cold
maybe it was the advertisement for Japanese Single Malt Scotch
maybe it was the lack of sleep
the waking up so early
then back to sleep
then long train ride in
maybe it's the movie being shot right outside my house
"Across the Universe"
a 60's/70's Musical (all music by the Beatles)
that has turned my intersection into a mockery of St Mark's Place / Haight...
every time i come home... or walk out the door
my long hair flying
everyone in the cast and crew stares at me
"Sorry, we're just making images here... who's this guy? and where'd he come from?"
My Rent was doubled today
i don't know how much longer i want to be in this city.
