I have always considered myself common, no matter how many accolades I afforded myself, or was afforded from others.
I am privy to common knowledge. What I learned today was so uncommon and to render me duncelike.
Did you know that there are people in this city who are forbidden from entering certain spaces?
That certain people’s movements in this city are legislated, and that they are forced to obey graphic boundaries?
I know this sounds surrealist, and remote, and wouldn’t occur to you literally…(although I’m sure many of you related to this metaphor on some level).
What I mean to say, is that I learned today that it is possible to be forbidden from entering certain areas of this city. Judgement can be rendered against you (lifelong no less!) to forbid you from travelling certain streets.
I’d like to see anyone try and stop me from pounding a single slab of this town’s pavement.
