Before we came here, under the columns of City Hall … … Lenape people – men watching women settling children for the night – nothing brighter than moonlight the shower of sparks from cooking fires rain of ashes the earth turns – centuries pass with open palms – we catch them as they fall return – returning letting go what was never ours to hold

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
