Traffic is backed up between Cottman and Girard. Schuylkill’s jammed from Belmont to the Curve. Trash blows through Fishtown on a warm winter wind. All the snow melted and everything is dirty. The clear, bright sun makes this obvious. Burton Bridge Bitter on the hand pump makes it fine.
Frankford looks dirty without the sun, without the snowmelt. Trash blows through Frankford without the wind. The El rumbles overhead without the train. Not getting jumped or doing crack makes it fine.
