[a new commercial center with mulitple overpasses]

a new commercial center with multiple overpasses            gin and grape ice cubes an
airport with blue patterned carpet                bar sign reads don’t forget to take a selfie
in san jose you can’t find postcards a testament to the city’s lack of suspiciousness
what is in a mall? the common destination for everyone always                the illusion
of public space
of conscious capitalism
of intimacy apparitions
of families clapping together

my petals change color, turn cholo from the tie dye in the water. the indirect sun
light the compression of second sharing slower than real time in imax 3d
our roots touching grafted together a drought-ing                all the golden grass ripped
up by secret night burglars                     our legs fused, fixed together. try running away
now she says.
