A washed-out vision,
Puzzled into shades of neutral,
We live in gray world,
Unmoored from the distraction of vibrant colors,
Captivated by the texture.
A restless creative mind, scatterbrained with curiosity and ruminating fecundity.
Where to look? What to see? Which to internalize and reinvent?
The window’s aperture compels focus, into an adventure that forces you to look outside your own existence.
At the corner,
At least trying to,
Generation thumbs pecking at the phone,
A passing bus emits CO2 into the air,
We breathe in street dust,
Overtaken by wafting the delivery man’s pizza,
Staring at the other side,
Eavesdropping on each other’s chatter,
The newcomers give the placebo button another pinch,
A living signal turns white,
Twenty seconds to cross,
The clock ticks,
We all go together,
Dog trotting to safety,
