PORNO WINDOW FRONTS

            Pirtle's Porno Window Fronts or is it Art? yeah right

It's 4am and I have napped earlier so pretty much wide awake...I decide getting the paper and doing the crossword to fall asleep... I'm shirtless but a newspaper box is across the street.... a bald or at least hairless on the head woman at the rail line yells at me Do you have a light.... No... I cross the street and two dead rat bodies lay in the street... a man is standing by the newspaper box pissing on it.... I'm not sure if my wanting to buy a paper takes precedence over his using of it as a urinal.... I wait for him to finish pissing and pass the time thinking about how the rats died.... he finishes and I get my paper

this afternoon close to where the dead rats were laying Two shirtless firemen were on the rail line ... oh crap another fire and why are they doing push ups.. which made no sense until I saw the photographer.... a fireman calendar or a gay magazine spread..... I mean lots of poses with hoses and half naked man behind the other dude with an ax

the city is mad at me again.... I have turned the storefront of Dean's into a gallery.. the first show was by Olga Porter... 10 oil paintings titled "Informal Nudes".... very Russian and slightly French impressionist.... vaguely abstract backgrounds and a rough sketch style of painting...I got the message through the grapevine that I got porno hanging on Main Street and its so inappropriate for the downtown image.... yes all the daycare centers and kids going to their office jobs or favorite night club on the weekends... Honestly I got a bigger boner watching the firemen playing with their hose than these paintings.....my daughter told me but they are not naked women its paint....I felt kinda sad that Montgomery County morality had any sway in downtown and that these images were obviously not erotica....is a window front a public space or private space and when Macy's changes a manican's outfit is that some sort of sex show striptease and lots of creepy 60 year old dudes watch and jackoff on the sidewalk...I want to hire some girls to sit in the window front in sultry clothes reading romance novels and a red light ...anyway I took the show down yesterday

so to all the children whose embarassed parents had to explain what art and culture is I am sorry...its a lot easier to explain to a kid why homeless sleep on the streets and use our newspaper boxes as urinals and why firemen are public servants whose masculine image makes for easily exploited homo-erotic imagery when placing nozzles between their legs and prancing half naked with another guy on Main Street
