Pulled off and parked
grass in front
pavement in back
Cars flitting like bright berries through
the green of the opposite bank
Sitting here is soothing and an urban reminder all at once.
The women in the car next to me do not enjoy the view.
Instead they huff on smokes
bicker exquisitely about something
borne away on the wind
like the last of the petals off the pollution-stunted cherry tree.
