The Parking Lot

If it is tiered (think airport),
an endless spiral climb
and search in darkened
levels of numbered spots.

If it is level (think movie theatre),
an immense plain of blacktop
adhering to plowed earth underneath,
like newly-cooled lava.

Vehicles remain in their slots
marked with metal signs
delineating rows or colors.
The cars remain there,

a robot harvest in this urban
or suburban garden, and bark
once or twice to tell their owners
reassuringly, we are still here!
