Picture of the Day
January 29, 2019

how many rectangles on your screen right now?              
if yours is like mine, there are too many to count.              
now look up--windows, doors, furniture, walls,          
appliances, even frames for art. we're surrounded         
but not much of it is round. what's nature know      
that we don't--or maybe just forgot? we box
ourselves in, boxes within boxes, with lines
straight and strong as prison bars. it's not
      all bad--think ping pong and tennis
         courts. but i just wanna bounce
                like a ball, out of bounds.
