persistent spring: east 50th street

Walking back to work from the library this afternoon (overdue fine of five dollars—FIVE DOLLARS!—on two books), I almost missed this very scrappy fellow on the corner of Fiftieth Street and Second Avenue: Wedged against a building, constrained by steel hoops, tugged partway out of the ground, and then rudely taken down to stump size.

And yet: Spring comes on the world.
