|POTUS on 23rd|
The President of the United States motored down 23rd Street in a black limousine. When he was a young man, he used to walk these same streets. Ride the subways. A cornucopia of human flesh and language. Ideas and daydreams bubbling in his head. The #1 down from Columbia. He probably had a favorite restaurant in Chinatown. Some friends in Brooklyn. But now he’s a ghost inside the dark windows. A caterpillar. Lots of cops and barricades to make sure he stays that way.
