DAYLIGHT SLIPS INTO EVENING, closing mostly unnoticed before a hurried audience.
But I study the scene—the stairstepped buildings of gridded squares. Geometry in architecture. Life and landscape reflecting upon panes. Everything seemingly perfect on the exterior. No broken panes.
Below, motorists zip off the interstate headed for somewhere. Grab a meal. Sip a beer. Sleep a night.
Only stoplights delay. Or too much traffic. Or a rerouting detour. Just normal life.
We zip along in our gridded, patterned days, hours planned. Grab a meal. Sip a beer. Sleep a night.
Until the unexpected happens and life crashes in to uncertainty.
