“Totally homeless”

Nestled on the pavement caught unwittingly between a Coca-Cola and an American Eagle advertisement, cigarette in hand (notice the most elegant of holds), her sign reads:

Please help me please

Totally Homeless

A $1.oo sure will help me a lot

(I sleep on the streets)

Please help me

God Bless You 

Somehow, the cigarettes, the backpack, the reading glasses and that vacant stare just don’t compare to her counterparts lining the streets of say, Mumbai…poverty redefined in New York City. Or is that being politically incorrect?
