Sunday in the Park

I went for a walk on Sunday through San Francisco’s Alamo Square Park.

It’s so refreshing to see people out and enjoying each other without the
rancor and ugliness of armed racists bearing Confederate Flags and
swastika’s.

I reflected on the beauty of the people and the day and realized how good life is when people simply agree to abide by civilized norms of behavior.

Please, enjoy this moment in the park.

Venice Beach, April 26, 1990

1,

He throws his
muscle onto
the beach
each swaggering
step a flex in

time.

As the
bodybuilder
struts to
shore

a seagull

crosses
the sky

she must
fly

2.

His abs and thighs
memories of flesh
from no specific
man from bodies
that no longer
exist–

now he stretches.
