to remember what walking will bring up

sunshine. of course, obstructed by clouds.
freeway overpass cement. and the concave cage you may

wrap your knuckles around and whisper at passing semis, hoping they'll honk anyway.

glass in the street.
parking lot signs, with low low prices.
that old man smiling with a shopping cart.

here comes the bridge, dark under there. not so tall, think you might
bump your head.
some kind of goo on the curb. gravel, makes you remember your smaller toes.
and the building you're headed for - the way it comes into view. over the dexter bus. over the under/overpass. over the heads of yellow headwraps.
