various thoughts, recollections and images

a shirtless homeless man
with a backpack
was carrying a faux flower down the street
with a grin upon his face,
countenance of peace

there was a giant aloe vera plant
taking over
the bushy region by the road

flesh market by the orange blossom,
smoke shop gurus peddling herb,
relax man, just breathe man!
energy drink-caffeine high
we’re addicted to this stuff, you know
gotta have my ten cups a day, man!
gotta keep the junk in my system, man!
