Pigeons on rooftops

contrast with masonry,

mixed colors under sun.


Paper cup person

in a cut crystal world,

The jester becomes a hero

but fails to get the girl.


People swimming in the pool

atop the Hilton,

Under six foot neon letters –

they have come together

from different places

at the same time

for different reasons.


They watch the jester

walk along the rooftops

among the pigeons

– they are friends –


The clouds in the background

float slowly

out of the picture

while the jester

and the pigeons

watch the people

watching back.


The jester is jealous,

the pigeons are not,

but some of the people

are jealous, too.


Contrasts with masonry

mixed colors under sun


Keep writing the songs that are in your heart.

Peace be with you.
