I Spy: night-time


A farmer in baggy overalls and a John Deere cap, quietly studying the river;

Children watching the baseball game, scorning mother’s repeated call;

Old couples flirting on riverside benches;

A giant of a man sitting on a lone bench. softly speaking, “Hey Girl”;

Fishermen on the banks, pensive and still;

Homerun Fireworks (just enough);

Young man mumbling coordinates into a cell phone, the Caddy with the other caller pulls up to make an exchange;

A low whistle from a shadowy figure in yet another Cadillac;

Ducks sans babies (already put to sleep for the night);

My vintage pumas running down the steps and then back up again.



More from the I Spy series.
