the light has changed
and the hum of the city
has broadened its scope,
making the neighborhood
rounder and more scrupulous.
Also worth noting: a view
of the pounding is appropriately
stunning to the lilt of bummers
and thrill seekers.
As the day continues to bloom
and decline into midday,
I'd like nothing better
than to move with a sense
of mystery and grace, while lurking
near the outliers with all their cabbage
and mace. In the meantime, I'll savor
the crevasse by wedging myself snuggly
between grandma and ecstasy.
