rats and homeless people

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Though I don’t claim to do yoga, I have daily yoga-like activities like right now yoga-block sitting on a subway platform deep in New Jersey rock of the Hudson River palisades. I’ve opted for a seat like this long before the recent social-distancing norms. My ass is raised above the platform by two yoga blocks and I manspread around my delivery pack that holds my keyboard and phone. This gig leaves me feeling prepared for the health crisis. Yesterday, seated as I am now, in front of the train schedule at Penn Station a man approached me triggering my spontaneous jump to my feet and step back. He wanted money, and this is what’s different. “I’m hungry” he said. His call had a tone of desperation more authentic than I’m familiar with. It’s possible the current lockdown makes me more sensitive to the plight of the homeless, so I’m hearing desperation that’s been there all along, but I don’t think so. In addition NYC rat sightings are more common during hours when they were uncommon. Seems that rats are desperately hungry too. »» about me 302-990-2346
