The author describes himself as a part-time, after-school honky, returning to the projects on the school bus each afternoon while most of his classmates at P.S. 41 sauntered home through safe Greenwich Village streets lined with brownstones, wrought iron fences, and functioning tree wells devoid of heroin needles or other garbage. He was also learning that the rules of class authority weren't as simple as they first appeared. He saw that poor people could wield authority over the nonpoor in certain face-to-face, local interactions, as a sort of consolation prize for the dominance the latter group exercised in the society as a whole. He invited Michael to come over to his apartment and at that day a hawk descended into the housing complex and plucked the carcass of a turkey out of one of the hefty trash bags lined up against the dumpster.
