Los Angeles, 7th & Broadway - postcard, 1945
 

mass

I'm marking time on the pavement
a whorl of people spilling from curbs;
destination's gravity an attractive pull
while time, early light and sensible physics
bend perceptively to the mass
of close social pressure;
expectations and deadlines delayed
'til the light turns green.

Jonathan Bohrn (2000)
