Manhattan is the Island of Misfit Toys

July 15, 2013

Things I saw on the sidewalk today

• A half empty bottle of Mountain Dew
• A million pieces of paper
• A pile of white wire coathangers
• A red and blue striped sweatshirt
• A crushed can of red bull
• A flattened sunflower
• A thousand tiny pieces of cobalt glass pressed into a crack in the sidewalk
• A pair of Nike sneakers, size enormous, black on the inside as if their owner had spontaneously combusted on the spot
• A book with no words on the cover
• Six broken umbrellas
• A gutted baseball
• A chair without a wheel
• A dress I might have worn
• Puddles of air conditioner water

    How did you resist opening the book to see if there were words inside?
