The Quiet Statue

A graceful Lady

a beautiful lady

wrapped in marble, shrouded in sunlight, stranded in a sea of concrete

on a corner in Pike Place Market

looks to the sky with a smile and then springs to life,

dances to music flies with the sunlight

that only the living can see.

Forever Midnight

Have you ever tasted Halloween

with the tip of  your tongue?

Tasted like pennies and burnt sugar

caramel,

thick and sweet sliding down your throat like warm blood.

Have you seen Halloween

from the corner of your eye

it moved like a cat,  black as midnight

where does it hide until you walk by alone

with nothing but the shadows to see your home?

Meet Halloween

shake it’s hand,

take it’s hand

in your own

pale as death

lonely as dusty bones

dreaming  where it is forever midnight

inside a ruined tomb.

Meet Halloween

tonight if you will.

It’s been waiting  so long

for you.

Jerks On Wheels

Here in Seattle we have this program where you can hop on a bike and ride it around and when you’re done you leave it for someone else to use.

It’s a Greeny thing. Seattle is big on the Enviro Movement.

On Most mornings I see a gaggle of bikes parked in or around a handicapped parking space in a local business’s parking lot.

Why snag the Handicapped space? I don’t know- maybe the idea is if they don’t SEE  a handicapped person in need of the space, they can take it. You know, it’s like the idea if you close your eyes the world disappears until you open them again.

Even if they don’t jam their bike (s) into the handicapped space they park them next to the space next to the Handicapped Space,  which is a non- parking space because if you’re a handicapped person who needs to use the door on the passenger side of the car, having that room to navigate is essential.

It’s such a jerk thing to do.

So I guess I want to say, thanks for saving the planet. You’re awesome, please let me be first to kiss your Environment- First Ass.

But while you’re out there saving the world, just don’t be such a massive Dick about it, okay?
