Analect 2.808x

19 November 2010. Gray skies, impending rain. Dark-browed workman with strong features, earphone arc...soiled hands and three brown-orange cups lined up in a row on steel counter of 7-eleven. Knee-pads over worn trousers.

"I'm lookin' for a job at honest pay..." Woody Guthrie, for Moe Asch, New York, in March of 1940. Lonesome Road Blues...

Last night: Image of a whale--the arching shape, on brown-tinted paper--delicate scrim of masts and sails.

Immigrants all...
