Excerpt 47

Manhattan

The World has slowed down.

Fear trips over the cracked sidewalk curb.

Tense faces shaded with ill-fitting masks irritate tender ears unaccustomed to elastic and string.

The warm Spring sun mocks us in our blue latex gloves.

Everyone is guilty.

Which movie had Charleston Heston visit the leper colony? All Biblical: Sparticus? Ben-Hur? Ten Commandments?

Government officials issue our new commandments. Police cars are welcome.

All control is an illusion.
