She Adopted A Fawn

(For La Grande, who told me about the fawn): on Telegraph, on the south side of Mars, in foot-high letters: "Tawdry People Need Learn From Audrey Hepburn", a line I toy with -- a line that toys with me -- the rest of the day, a sign that mixes fleeting images of one of my own personal goddesses with the squalor on the street, a line that sails regally over the heads of the students and vendors setting up in the morning glare. On Bancroft next to Sproul there's a line hundreds of metres long of identicaly made-up and dressed students and locals queueing to apply to be in a new Berkeley edition of MTV's Real World.

Further down Telegraph I buy a new biography of de Kooning, which puts it all in perspective.
