Made Here Marquee Contest

This is great: Made Here Marquee contest. 350 characters about Hennepin Avenue, and the winning work will be displayed on a Block E marquee as part of the Made Here project.

Here’s mine. I might as well just put it out there since it’s hopeless, given that it is hardly a chamber of commerce moment:

 

I give my best butch strut walking down the broken pavement. Marquee lights flash, traffic heavy. People in pairs, groups, many alone.

“Where ya going, Lolita?” says a man in a muscle shirt leaning against the wall.

“Nowhere.”

“You gotta watch out. There are some serious people around here, people who mean you ill.”

A woman in too-high heels laughs.
