Coffee: Organic Bolivian Blend, Trader Joe’s Brand
Rain-blushed yellow, that’s how the road was. I drove the Triangle Expressway – a toll road I don’t usually take – to get me home faster, my old home, Burlington, and the highway passed under other highways I often travel and the traffic was not bad, the wind mobile as a toddler, Spring born over and over in dewey-wet trees still hanging on between the outlet malls, and all I could do was think about twenty years ago when it was probably just trees and about how regular it is to watch living things die and get replaced by permanent concrete and how hate and violence are the stuff of nature and civility is as much a stiff brick as all that concrete, less vibrant but providing for people, only the tack holding our gray-red monster of a wall in one piece keeps chipping.
