Thursday, January 29, 2009: On the Street…Yellow Shoes, Paris

Solid, unliving objects notice the climate.
Downy green fur sprouts on rocks,
Shifting surfaces from rough to soft.
Coins grow tarnished shells, ink that clings
To silver, seafoam sprung from copper.

Moss, rust, tarnish, ropes of ivy—
You offer the aged, lonely things and places
Steady, slow compassion, companionship.
