Union Square Xmas



The Flaneur received an early Christmas gift this year, can you guess what it was?






I love a deserted arcade-- closed on Sunday







They're now selling penguin meat in supermarkets
--how ghastly








The Glitterati











Once upon a time in the lobby of the St Francis Hotel







The light and the dark side of Union Square







Everyone was having a good time under the tree
even the perfume spritzers were laughing







Bruce Springsteen and family joined the holiday skaters









Sunny and warm as only a California drought can be
A Yuletide blast-off for young and old...






The band played all the old holiday favorites like
"Brand New Leopard Skin Santa Hat"







The maw of Macy's
holiday shoppers buzz the hive
On the crowded sidewalk a little boy stopped me
 by holding a plush toy snake up to my crotch.
He giggled with delight as Mom herded him off
while avoiding eye-contact with me. 







So I tucked into a nook on a side street of my mind for a cup of cheer
and a peaceful smoke with some suave old pals of mine







Coming soon the ecclesiastical side of Xmas.
