The old man holding out a paper cup on the subway

He begged for change like he was preaching.  He preached for change.  “There  are so MAny of us.” Those persuasive iambs made me think of Professor Sen who said that you have to consider why people are on the streets.  A man who, however bent and soft-spoken, defined the edges of every word, must have spoken of other things before he started asking for change.

“No aMOUNT is too small.”
