Welcome to The Cahokian...
A thousand years ago Cahokia — across the Mississippi from what is now St. Louis — was one of the biggest cities in the world. Now it's an empty green spot next to the highway. I'm a middle-aged gay man living in New York City, center of the world, future footnote on somebody's future map. Welcome to the new world.

East Village, 1990s
"Recent Unsafe Sex...If I Get AIDS in 1995 I Guess It's My Fault," random crazy-person art poster found on a lamppost in the East Village, mid-1990s. From the collection of a friend.
