jolie laide: Commuting 5/31

jolie laide

I started this when I lived in Brooklyn and struggled for grace in a city that grants moments of beauty and ugliness breathtakingly close to one another. Now I live in a place where things are a different kind of ugly and the beauty is pedestrian. I struggle with that.


Commuting 5/31

Shoot, shoot, shoot.
I am late for work.
A blue, a rusting, a metal intersection.

Shoot, shoot, shoot.
This to order my chaos.
A spray, a slice of light, a corner.

Shoot, shoot, shoot.
An attempt to effect visibility.
A loop, a red, a dissolve.
