2020 At A Glance

Several signs on the church door says “no loitering on the church steps”; someone has scrawled “WWJD” on all of them.

A dog catches sight of itself in a mirror, and begins to snarl and bark viciously, then immediately forgets what he was doing when a treat is tossed in front of him.

A dirty sidewalk, recently cleared - the path forward seems clear, but filthy ice and snow sulks in long, heavy piles on either side.

Dozens of discarded lotto tickets lie scattered along an almost empty subway platform; when the train roars into the station, they flutter weakly like wounded birds, then stop.
