way uptown

It’s evening and the shifts are changing, people crowd the sidewalks toward the subway. I am walking against their grain and I see a cluster of men emerge from the grand entrance to the teaching hospital. They are tall and square-shouldered. Their smooth skin glows with the same sun that must have once raised their grandfathers’ corn to great heights and sweetness. They can’t have been here long. The city hasn’t carved itself into their faces yet.
