CITY WALK XIIIElisa Gabbert & Kathleen Rooney
A $10 bill Wind hovering Impertinent sentinel of busted neon Fauxhemian woman, the terror of eye contact To steal is to violate the "body ellipse" Functional, civil public space self-destructing A small girl with a fixed smile Emerging from the nothing there Where "as the crow flies" does not apply Money is so abstract Yet active Beguiling Nobody gets hurt Politic means "crafty"
