A SPIRIT PARADE

A SPIRIT PARADE

"
downtown
tourist town
root stew

selves sought out in a land
where no one fully lives

the main street sidewalk
a spirit parade
infinite

yet the way to work evolves
like a burning candle
the superimposition of new faces
onto old

a demographic almanac of movement

You paint a picture in this one K… as I read, it comes to life, as a town that sustains itself on tourism.. I love the talk of a "spirit parade".. with the title I was expecting a spooky write..but was pleasantly surprised to see it was in reference to the ever changing faces, which includes the shop workers..
Very Nice work !

I didn't need a dictionary for this one. Either I'm getting smarter or you've given me a break. ;p

Anyways, I love it. I love living in the city, but I hate tourist parts. Tourists look at things like they're foreign, including the people lol

"...yet the way to work evolves like a burning candle" - I didn't get it at first. I was going to give you some crap about it too. Then I saw it was "published" (congratulations by the way) and then reread it - and it hit me. Or at least something whacked me and said, inside my head, "Perhaps he means it literally you numbskull. It (the way to work) melts into a smokey, sooty, drippy mess; like waxy puddles. A candle of humanity, of civilization rendering its token flame in the name of the movement dujour." "Oh. OK!", I sez to myself. Not bad. Not bad at all. :o)

I can imagine. You're from Canada, right? Your country is swarmed by thousands of people, even millions (who knows?) from all over the world. Especially Asians (lol, i'm gonna get there someday adding the population). My relatives and some of my friends are even there and more to come:) This piece tells a geologic phenomena of an entire state. Published. Wow, what can I say?

This is short, sweet, and to the point. It sheds light on the revolving door of life's transitional pace as it relates to human beings. Great work. :)
