Snapshots on Sunset Boulevard

14 Mar

Lush green hidden lawns
Legs tanned
skin glistening
Step, Step, Step
Running
Mansions
concrete pounding
4 o’clock

Fiery red hair
fair skin in a blue dress
Step, Step, Step
Running
up the stairs
4 o’clock

Blonde side swept
perfect hair
Taut bodies
walking in step
sunglasses
4 o’clock

Serving coffee
leaning over
taking orders
Hollywood pretty
side stepping
tables
4 o’clock

Mercedes G-Class SUV
Actor
Smiling
out
4 o’clock

By the Standard
at the Andaz
near the Plaza
glasses
clink, clink
smiling
tightly
4 o’clock

Amoeba beats
nights at the Bowery
red carpets
closing out
at
4 o’clock

101 snaking
to a crawl
rather cruise
down Sunset
past
4 o’clock

Empty lot
womanly curving
body dancing
Adams apple bobbing
in tune
performing

Hidden
reserved
ostentatious wealth
worn at the sleeve
of a $150 flannel
coffee
4 o’clock

Brown skin
worn clothing
sweat
Step, Step, Step
working
way past
4 o’clock

      Thanks! 🙂 That drive is one of my favorites, everywhere you look, it’s like seeing a mini story unfold. It reminds me of how many stories are out there.
