5) Visa loves me – or Tow Guys Are Not Poets—or The Day they towed My Honda Civic. Suzi.
This is a photograph of Suzi, a most excellent staff person of Big Tow Towing company in Rockville Maryland. Suzi was not like the fine psychologist I used to see a few years back. She was not feeling. She was not tender. She did not care about me. She did not ask me to talk about my Mother.
“$198, that’ll be.”
I ponied up, cheerfully. Life is fun, when spending money you do not have. It is fun to contribute to the ailing U.S. economy. It is fun to make Republicans happy.
Here, in this pic, Suzi is perusing the official documents which detailed my offense against the state. She pushed them my way.
“Sign,” said Suzi.
I scribbled my signature, thinking of Andre Durain, wondering if Pablo Picasso himself had ever suffered for his art like this.
