I must push through before my day's run is finished. Mid-June, two weeks before school lets out for summer vacation, and Twenty-first Street is still closed to traffic. Children from the school planted like a drab Victorian marker between Eighth and Ninth Avenues frolic in the warm noontime sun like young horses let out to pasture. From one end of the street to the other, energetic pre-adolescents track free time with that high-pitched buzz of anticipation characteristic everywhere of children at play. Directly in my path, apart from the others and squaring off on opposite sides of a manhole cover pressed like an iron thumbprint into the heat-softened creosote, two twelve-year-old boys face off. A beefy Hispanic, body crouched low, and a lean long-limbed Asian who dances around him, a hard-eyed Sugar Ray in the pure silk lining of his imagination. The Asian jabs at the air, punctuating space. Whoosh! Whoosh! Whoosh! Another warrior awaiting the combative future.
