Fifteen-Second Theatre # 1
[ Between 52nd Street and 53rd. Tall Man crosses Broadway from the East and hangs a left. Blind Man is standing in front of a magazine shop, wearing Blind Man’s glasses, holding a sign that reads, “blind, hungry, please help.” Tall man is walking past. ]
Blind Man: Sir could you help a blind veteran?
[ Tall Man doesn’t slow down. With his left hand waves off Blind Man’s request. ]
Blind Man: Sir, just a dollar. Help out a homeless veteran.
Tall Man (foolishly): It’s a nice act but how’d’you know to call me sir?
Blind Man: How you mean?
Tall Man: If you’re blind.. (For a moment Tall Man feels Superior)
[ Blind man makes a false start toward Tall Man, then laughs as Tall Man flinches and hurries off. ]
Blind Man (to himself): Fuckin’ motherfucker.
Tall Man (to himself): Fuckin’ motherfucker.
