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



Life is process
