lafayette ave nov 3 noon

the steady loudness of the watching crowd floats through my window from lafayette avenue, from early morning through the afternoon. the marathon runners are a never-ending stream of new york humanity, urged on by kids and friends and strangers and running enthusiasts, by signs and gatorade and slices of cantaloupe and a tambourine. an aging black man, his bib tacked to the back of his inexpensive black vinyl wheelchair, pushes himself backwards with one foot; two helpers in neon vests walk alongside, shielding him from the stream. a little bed-headed child holds out his cardboard sign and they high-five, joyously.
