All my little Zadigs, I always think when I walk around and notice the newer people surrounding me. They’re clearly new to the city. They don’t walk past things the way me and the other life-long residents do. I’m not immune to everything, but I have to at least act as though I am. God forbid another city resident sees me aghast at something lest I look like a green myself. I try to see my city through their fresh eyes of excitement and opportunity, it’s quite fun and rejuvenating truth be told. I love when I catch one of them after they’ve seen something wretched. They usually look around rather frantically, maybe trying to confer with others around them. Something urgent in their eyes asking, Are you seeing this? What should we do? The somber answer to these inquiries is that we should do what we are already doing: nothing much at all. Those aren’t my monkeys and it’s not my circus I want to scream at them. But they’ll find out. Or, in some cases, they’ll become the one we’re all pretending not to gawk at. [Ryan Nimmo]
