coconut.

Standard

 when walking downtown

this just sitting on a corner

no palm trees to be found

i wonder

if you are missing your coconut

did you leave it behind

 did you lose it

and not notice?

“in the garden of gentle sanity, may you be bombarded by coconuts of wakefulness.”

intersection.

Standard

as the city begins to reopen

i find so many things at an intersection

guys on scooters, cars, pedestrians, orange construction cones,

lights, signs, trees, a clock, flyers

and of course

a robot delivering food across town

who gets the right of way?

man or machine?

“we’re fascinated with robots because they are reflections of ourselves.”

main street, ann arbor, mi, usa – 1952, a few years back.

when transportation options were booming

and parking was more flexible.

“all the stories i’ll ever need are right here on main street.”

at least misplaced it for a moment.”
