street scene

Do we have a fable here, Aesop? Do we have a haiku, Basho?

I for one don't want no quotidian business around here. The hen could grow, grow immensely, snatch the dog and fly away. Fly over white clouds on a deep blue sky, over blue mountains overlooking a gorgeous valley. The closed shop shutter could be hiding a magic caveway to a magic castle. The xerox machine could be no ordinary xerox machine, it could be a magic xerox machine --

Wait, this must be the effect of watching too many Miyazaki movies. I usually sleep a dreamless, memoryless sleep, but last night in the dream I was looking at myself in a mirror. Most hair was gone. There were bad, big, dark, green warts on the skull. A few odd patches of hair remained. Eyes, I don't remember much about them --

Right, there's something called too much Miyazaki.

"Let sleeping dogs lie,"
giggles the hen,
looking away.

Ah. You should do this more often, you know. :)

I won't excuse you for not having bent down or even sitting down on the road while taking this picture ;)

But I'll claim that snapshot style is deliberate! Carefully composed isn't really street. ;)

Damn! You win. Extreme street, eh?

We should meet one of these days, and not just because I intend to switch to a new GPG key (already on the keyservers).

We should. We'll meet one of these days... when the stars align and the moon's phase is right. :)
