A Random Walk



Last night I walked around the burb just after the sun set.

The sky in the west was a robin’s egg blue.

Passing one house I smelled the intense odor of patchouli.

The sky became deeper electric blue, like a movie screen.

A few blocks on there was a strong aroma of baby eggplant in garlic sauce, Chinese style.

A half mile on it was frying hamburgers.

Then sharp wood smoke from a fireplace.

I can’t find the connection.
