Non Sequitur

Even a harmless snake

Is a perceived threat

When a brittle stick becomes animated

Beside your foot

 

The closer to downtown

The slower the road repairs

 

Even if you are all alone at sunset

You share that moment of transcendent beauty

With countless others

 

Ripping out native plants for lawns and flowerbeds

Is horticultural colonialism

 

Sidewalk etiquette is a moving target

 

Hearts beat louder at midnight

 

I can’t recall ever seeing anyone sitting around

Doing advanced mathematics for fun

Not even quadratic equations

But the education system sure treats that shit seriously

Seriously.

 

Life is process
