reading the Vanity Fair history of The Simpsons
at the curb
two issues of a New York literary magazine
don’t smell of smoke or coffee
Wednesday evening people wheel their garbage cans out to the curb, and next to the garbage they snuggle up blue bins filled with cans & bottles & bagged paper.
I walked about the neighborhood that evening. The two copies of the New York literary magazine were issues of Open City from 2003. As they were clean and had a few names I’d heard of, I brought them home.
