He’s getting his shoes shined. He doesn’t look to happy about it. The man of the street looking for work giving shoe shines for 50 cents or 1 dollar. Down the street in New York someplace is where this is at. Many years ago. At the Embassy for foreign exchange. Everyone was going to a show there. They use garbage bags before suitcases. They don’t really know each other. The ones a business man. He has enough money for his pipe. Hearing street car sounds. Smelling the tobacco from the pipe. They are at the mall, one of those outdoor things. What year did loafers come in, the way he’s dressed don’t know what he has in the garbage bags. The shoe shiner is hoping he gets paid a big amount. The man looks like he’s disgusted waiting for someone that hasn’t shown up. The man with the pipe says his feet are hurting and the other man says he has a pair of second hand shoes that might feel better. They’re at the train station. He’s going to visit relatives in the city. He’s running away from his wife she wouldn’t let him take the suitcase. They are probably from South America. Thinking they came from Mexico. It’s hard to say there were a lot of poor people in those days. He’ll go get his pipe filled. He’s going to go job hunting and the other one will keep shining shoes. He’s going to go see his relatives. They can make a lot of money shining shoes if they’re in the right place.
