The Artists

he is an artist,
unaware of his ability to mix line and space,
unconsciously balancing his lanky frame against the well worn skeleton of a
bicycle on a quiet train platform at sunset
which creates a magnificent composition I shall call
Man-Child Trying To Get Home.


The Preacher

A wannabe preacher with no church
attempts to hijack a train car.
Hoping to convert passengers aka nonbelievers into believers,
He stomps and yells balancing his threats of damnation with promises of private
introductions to God and Jesus!!!
When the doors open, he leaves exhausted…
Its hard work casting out devils and saving souls on the MBTA!
