A sad, slow walk home after a hard day’s work in Manhattan can be justified by plenty: harrowing fatigue, directional confusion caused by existential crisis; even the shuffle step of self-pity is an accurate attribute of a demanding job.
But every time, without fail, the further you walk, the further your worry.
Simple strolls here are but humbling scripture, psalms you once knew by heart but barely recognize anymore until you come to the chorus of a thing, like the sight of a seventy-two year old Korean woman, someone’s grandmother, smiling while stitching in a poorly lit, empty laundromat after hours, its storefront gate emphatically covering the windows like prison bars; a sight that sets your self-pity on fire and replaces the ashes with shame and empathy and an instant commitment to sacrifice more for the people who have been waiting for you to sacrifice any.
Remember this remedy the next time it hurts in the city: there’s an amen on every avenue.
