Overheard in New York

"I could die at any time.
That's why my job is so great.
I clock in for doom."
—37th & Broadway

I don't know the details
of this overheard conversation,
but my guess is that somebody
was trying really hard
to impress a girl.

Maybe it worked.

Or maybe she just laughed
and said, "Did you, like,
get that from Barney Fife?"

That's why he' riding a fixee with no brakes. If you're going to go out, go out brakeless full speed ahead.

By the way, are we ever going to hold an Alleycat up here or what? I've been looking for chances to impress chicks with my awesome trackstand.

dramatic but true

many jobs have their dangers

police officer
and even messenger

and well
fishermen out at sea

when I was in my early 20's I was a fast and wild youth expressing myself in whatever I did

worked as a messenger
when the panhandlers on the street would beg for change I would ask them why I should give them my money that I earned risking my life
always an inch from death
doing a job that anybody with a bike could do

I have a tendancy to get dramatic
