P.S.: This post goes out to Posterchild. It would appear I have become his muse.
In regards to the above opus he wrote:
In the course of researching this work, I discovered that machines like the one Iâ€™m describing already exist. They are known as â€œReverse Vending Machinesâ€ and I think that they are an absolutely outstanding idea!
Special thanks to Miss Heather of New York Shitty for inspiring this piece; she wrote to me: â€œYou should hit some of the pay phones in my hood. Theyâ€™re usually employed as trash receptacles for empty fifths of vodka and/or brandy. Among other things.â€
Thanks for getting me thinking about how people really use these payphones, and sorry that this didnâ€™t make itâ€™s way out to Greenpoint!
