Fighter for Hire. Handwritten sign taped up in window, north side of street between Summit and Central. Best viewed from sidewalk, or from middle of the street; sign is some 12 or 15 feet above street level.
In the tradition of personal-experience-purveyor Marina Abramovic, or perhaps shape-shifter Cindy Sherman. Block handwriting in black marker itemizes the services the fighter will provide: Instruction, by the hour, in pugilism’s various forms. Useful (the sign notes) for problems at school, at work, at home. At a time when a person might be feeling particularly beleaguered, exposed, battered by the increasing shrillness of the country’s prevailing winds, a well-placed punch could, even for a peacenik, make a few things right. There are other truths that cost less, and hurt less, but they won’t do you as much good.
The fighter knows. He has a little of what you need. Get some, if you can.
