Daniel Romano – “The Pride Of Queens”


Looks like a lonely walk down that road, but she seems to be enjoying herself—sauntering, even. The problem: if no one sees your sign, does it count as a protest?

Maybe it isn’t meant to be, anyway. Daniel Romano describes her Ramonesy journey as: “Noble Avant-Guard-ist walks the evaded boulevards of the universal boondocks.”

The research portion of today’s post: If you google “repressed rapture” (the protest sign) the predominant source is poet Percy Bysshe Shelley: “A dewy moisture filled her eyes, as she gazed with an expression of tumultuous, yet repressed rapture, upon the hapless Verezzi.”
