Rainy Day Tourism

On Wall Street,
a bearded man in a wide-brimmed hat
tells them the story of Mario Buda.
"The driver climbs out of the wagon.
The back is covered. No one can see inside."
He raises his arms, spreads them.

On Broadway,
a doubledecker blue tour bus
pauses beside Zuccotti Park.
A family of four
in matching yellow branded ponchos
is bored.

On Albany Street,
the wet crowd is patient.
Their cameras charged.
What do they hope to see?
A hole in the ground.
