       Before we came here, under the columns of City Hall …
              … Lenape people –
         men watching
         settling children for the night – 
         nothing brighter

         than moonlight
         the shower of sparks from cooking 

         of ashes

               the earth turns – centuries
         with open palms – we catch them as they fall

         return – returning
         letting go
         what was never ours to hold


10/31/11 Day 26
11:42 PM
Weather 56 – 31 Fog
first night below freezing

Zombie Capitalism! Fake blood and tatters, march, City Hall to South Street—I cut off for home at 5th & South—up Passyunk.


Facilitated the 2:00 PM GA. Will I get Soc Sec tomorrow? Last month, deposit was made on the first—but not dated till the 3rd on bank statement (?)
So don’t know whether I’ll have money in the bank tomorrow or have to wait till Thursday

Day 27
Weather: 59 – 42

Flocks of pigeons, starlings...
     ...over the plaza
     voices 	rise
     the many shapes

     our bodies take

     our less than perfect


     in flight across the city square
     converge, disperse

     unite ... in fragile disarray
