One Day in America

In the 95 degree heat of August

A man of indeterminate age with Down's Syndrome, wearing an Italian suit and sunglasses, shouting stock market orders into his cell phone

A senior citizen in a track suit and wheelchair, vomiting into a street corner trash can

An angry man with no legs alternately begging for money and demanding to be let into a nearby strip club

A three-year-old child riding a big wheel on the sidewalk at 2am, gently apologizing for being in the way of drunken young adults on their way home from a club
