The Final Taboo Broken at Mission and Van Ness

Photo and title by James.   We are what we eat, y’all!

I can’t stop looking at this image.  This, plus the negative NYT review of Jonathan Safran Foer’s Go Veg book (which changed Natalie Portman’s life, just like The Shins) I read mere minutes before receiving this photo has given me a lot to think about today.  I’d call it “food for thought,” but that’d be way too much of a mindfuck.

  1. I used to see this on 6th street. One often thinks of oneself as solid and somewhat unflappable, but then one sees a pigeon eating a chicken wing.

  2. Once witnessed on Jones St:

    Pigeon 1: roadkill. Pigeon’s last meal had been corn.
    Pigeon 2: standing over carcass of Pigeon 1, eating the corn.

    1. one could only hope. I swear this one pigeon I saw who had the lower scaled section of their leg almost completely severed was thinking about it as he hobbled about.

  3. A crow was eating a pigeon atop the telephone pole at 16th and Guerrero and a severed, bloody wing gently floated down, coming to rest near my feet.
