Silver water fills cracks in concrete, reflecting off the bright buildings of Seattle. I can see my breath, glowing red and yellow, neon like a sign my chest stings from the sharp air.
windows with water sliding down, tears down buildings that seem to touch the heavens, smell of fish and dark coffee, caffeine coursing through veins, making tired eyes come to life. The water is calming, a steady rise and fall, inhale and exhale I mirror it, cars splashing over rain-streaked roads, looking for free parking, jangle of coins I pass a smell, see a tattered shirt draped over taught skin and wide eyes, a makeshift shelter in the bushes. Buses squeak and groan, full of faces bleak or purposeful. Laughter as a couple stumbles by, her low cut dress revealing. The moon big and low, I can see it clearly, a giant creature staring at me. The universe feels small suddenly... but where did I park my car?
