Traveling between Union Street and Atlantic Avenue-Pacific Street. An elderly Hispanic man steadying himself with a walking stick, moves through the carriage holding a battered paper cup, his voice slipping between monologue and song: high quavering notes. A woman hands her son a $1 note; he drops it into the cup.
When we pull into Atlantic Avenue the old man steps out of the carriage, walks across the platform, waits for another train.
