They’re so great and miserable you know, all these taught little chain-smokers that wore blue and built the world.  Maybe you knew or heard about some of them.  They always woke up so early and never smiled.  They sold their bags of blood and bone and muscle for dog shit and free soup.  They had principles because they never read the kinds of books that made you burn all of those off in the name of youth.  The facts are the facts I’ve heard and the fact is that we live in and on their staggered monuments of industry.  We occupy this world of walls their little brick bodies stacked to make us and we owe them as we hate them.  So say a little silent thanks when you’re spitting on a sidewalk.
