YOU CAN'T BE SO CRITICAL
And you've got to let things slide : the man
whose pants seem way too short, what's it

Thrift store, she's poor. I understand all that.
I watch her throw her kid around like a bag
of marbles - a slap to the face with the back
of a hand. Ghetto stuff, poor people, no sense
of imagination. Plus, the kid's a real brat.
Crawling out of a 19-year old Ford Taurus
this idiot guy is spitting tobacco to a Newark
Street - he looks backwards, to see who's
watching. I hold a camera he never sees.
