Look at this loveliness, from my friend Norm's blog.
I think I met him in 1989. Or 1990.
We lived in the same apartment building on Horatio Street,
in a neighborhood now made famous by "Sex & the City."
Except when we lived there, you were more likely to see
a transvestite hooker on our corner at 9am, than a Samantha Jones.
Or in the same frame: a tranvestite hooker
side-by-side with a meat-packing guy in a bloody apron.

The first time I saw Norm, he was blowing bubbles
in the middle of the street, with a giant bubble wand.
Those were the days!
