Curiosity Shop

Another yesterday
In the life of the Berkeley Flaneur 
in exile

 The good old boardwalk
The Port of Oakland
Sunnier milder weather over I

 I always capture this building
because I like it
First time with smart phone cam

 Ronan Worship
Monday March 21st
$15 - 8:00pm

People on the bus
 Top hen goose loonie--new meds?
Extreme clown make-up not in evidence today
As we passed the cathedral I made the sign of the cross
Said a little prayer with my eyes closed,
When I opened them she did a contemptuous mockery of me

 Well, here's looking at you, Kid
I exited singing, 
"Which side are you on?"

While I was taking this shot
A young head-banger emerged from the hidden door
Of the mat-black Oakland Metro Opera House
As he went back in I said
"Behave yourself now,"
We both laughed

 This sweet harmless lady is also somewhat challenged,
She is an artist as well,
Seemingly every day she creates a new bonnet
Out of shiny appropriations,
Flamboyant and extravagant,
Every day is an Easter parade

 What are the Oakland cops up to at night?
They watch a big-screen TV, third floor right,
Warriors games, I can even see the free throw results,
Last night they were watching TMZ

The room you don't want to visit
Is right upstairs
With the shade tightly drawn shut
