Monday Evening Writing Group
Prompt 1. Senses

Notorious Access-A-Ride pulling away and writing buddy almost missed it because they only have to wait five minutes often stranding folks in wheelchairs or with other challenges

We often take the first Avenue Limited
home together after
I depart at 25th Street
She travels on to the Eighties

Lovely Lucy observes
While my old Union friend, Margarita kindly does my taxes for me. New York State demands filing on line and Turbo Tax charges $29.99 to file it!
We walked patient Lucy
Then I waited for the cross town bus
in front of this great old dive

I placed an ailing friends name on the
"being watched over" altar at the Zendo
(found out Thursday her test results are 'clear')

Throwback Thursday

A trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles
Because I let my non-driver I.D. expire while I was busy with more pressing issues of life in the body, I have to get a new one and that means 'start again' showing proofs of residence, and other I.D.s of their specific designation. Gathered all last night.
While waiting for the cross town bus I shot two reflections in Housing Works windows:
 Someones Past
366 West 31st Street Manhattan
3:30, 4:30, 5:30
Took a break and went out to look at the sky
 See the seagull and the hawk high above
Their Computer went down for a while, some folks left.
Photograph, Proofs checked, Paid

Sky Theif
 Crane City
Walked down Ninth Avenue
"Shapiro Untitled Bronze"
 Post Office Rest Stop
 One Brown Pigeon
 Only One
 Watching me watching her
 Another Crosstown bus and I was home
Limping and Exhausted
Soup and Solace

Note to self:
You only have so much energy to be actively congenial among many others for long periods of time. It's okay to fall short of output, to disengage while remaining present, to fall into silence.
