Bird to Bird, Beak to Flake

A seagull contemplates consumption of Corn Flakes scattered in the street

This one particular seagull was more contemplative than the others. Was it joy at the bounty? Did it recognize the rooster on the Corn Flakes box?

Setting Expectations

tv with caution tape

A crew started chiseling below my bedroom early this morning. My downstairs neighbors had decided now to make flat and of concrete what has long been patchy and of asphalt. They were making their liability a legitimate sidewalk.

Trash that's been sitting outside my building was used to set up the perimeter around the work zone while wet concrete set. This clunky old television marked one corner. A mattress marked the other. Wrapped around and strung between both was yellow caution tape, indicating danger.

CRT to the CuRB

CRT in trash heap

I remember having a monitor just like that. Mine was a 19" Sony Trinitron that, at the time around the year 2000, changed world by declaring it flat and not curved, like all the montitors were in those times.

Rocking Out

I think, if logic triumphed, there has to be a story behind a small rocking horse hanging outside a window of an apartment builing. But if logic triumphed, a rocking horse wouldn't end up there of all places.

Plant Life in the Back of a Pickup Truck

This truck is usually parked outside of the apartment on Butler St. The owner is scrap collector so the bed of the pickup is typically filled with things like fridge doors, radiators and stoves.
