haruki lunchtime

lunchtime sunshine
took a walk down water street
on the wrong side, without the sidewalk
rough shoulders and facing into traffic
early lupine blooms, a view of the water
Union River
stockmen loading seafood into trucks
with a Maine accent
three women browsing gravestones at
Dunn and Sons
Kafka on the Shore under my arm
to be returned
ordered at Serendib
then headed to the library
picked up Wind Up Bird Chronicles
chatted with librarian
about magical realism – friendly!
back to Serendib
back to work

one mile
