    the color of cement
    walks with
    his phone at
    his ear

    he’s one
    with the sidewalk

    Nicely formed in the idea of Zen that notices such details :)
    Love it.
    Great image too.



    After I ask someone 'do you know the sound of one hand clapping?' the reply is usually no .. so I slap them round the face.
    'There you go', I say :D
