Still shambling the streets of the city Nelson Algren defined, I am the Monster in a madhouse refined. Burma Shave.

As Below, So Above
A few weeks back, I left the subway at State & Lake. This intersection I mention quite often, primarily because it is a major hub for changing destinations. I had some time to kill, so I went into the Wit Hotel and took photos from the 27th floor while all the booze hounds were watching the Stanley Cup playoffs. Then I went back to street level and talked to the homeless man pictured, Louis, who was hoping to get enough money so he could take the el train to the Viceroy Hotel, an SRO at Maypole and Ashland. The last photo is of the train pulling in.
