Bob Woodward is teaching a Master Class online about Journalism. He discusses
the Human Source.
I’ve lived in this building
more than half my life.
People in the elevator
a Human Source
famous musician he died
chained to his bed leather cuffs
no one ever found out
what actually happened young
beautiful prostitute from
the city of Malaga she married
a rich man in a grey suit moved
to Central Park West years ago
I saw her with baby and nanny one day
lipstick now muted we kissed hello
old elevator friends the landlord a man
with wives and wives
I had a building interview with the landlord’s mother
she was wearing a white leather miniskirt
go go boots This is a Respectable Building she said.
How respectable are you? I told her I didn’t know
and she said That’s Not a Good Answer. If anyone
asks you that question again you should reply
I Am Respectable and leave it at that.
