It Was Spring in Tompkins Square Park and Elwood's Thoughts Turned to Love ...

Elwood , who I have written of before in an obituary , on this spring day had been buying and fetching beer and cigarettes all day for the young woman in the tree . She had led him on , suggesting that his generosity would be rewarded with a sweet , lascivious favor sometime later in the day . But of course such was not the case : she had no such thought of a reward of any kind in her mind , just an obssesion for more beer and cigarettes . Finally late in the afternoon , in a fine ruttish mood , Elwood chased the young temptress around the park and up a tree where she was as shown here not quite out of reach.
