A6 of the newspaper features the police beat
& on Wednesday-
A man was trying to climb out the window
"to escape his wife." He was "acting strange"
on Moore St. "waving his hands like he is
waving at God."
And who's to say he is not? A Hallelujah moment,
hope for redemption or salvation in the form
of a lightning strike ~~~ cracking the sky
like a smile back that says don't blame me
for your choices
a forerunner of soft rain for Thursday's-
Two "unwanted" people in the parking lot
of the [local] high school
pattering, pattering, pattering on the asphalt
in fluid reflection of the flashing blue lights
written for Magpie Tales.
Focusing in on the single man staring out the window on the top floor of the building in the painting, I remembered some interesting lines from the police beat in yesterdays newspaper. Hope everyone is having a great long weekend.
