The wall was freshly painted and he brushed up against it, by accident, wearing his new winter jacket.
It was dismissed as a “Happy Accident”
One day in Chelsea he was visiting his CPA, two Frenchmen boarded the elevator after he, they looked him up and down, the two men were dressed in fine woolens and linens , ” I feel so underdressed, we are in the presence of a “Jackson Pollack” they spoke with great reverence and endearment.. Later in the East Village he stopped to get bread and sausage at the Polish Deli, A woman approached him from behind and hurried past him , then turning towards him with a scowling brow and pointing finger she waved it in his face like a loaded pistol
You!You leaned against a wall” she said in a german accent.
The next day he was hanging out with friends, his jacket draped across a chair
” Dude, Get rid of the Jacket, it’s over, Academy Surplus is having a sale, you can get a good deal all over town.
