seen / un / seen

driving east on q st after grocery shopping at safeway
hi '90s summer late

way out beyond
the shops the gee gaws the novelty wares

3 guys in wife-beaters
mid-20s looking to sell some used shit

in a make-shift yard sale
in the tiny spit of grass before their 1970s era flat

boring and brown
the day the heat the paint on the building

one guy stands and points
at another

with something in his hand
anna asks was that a gun?

a scene from a minor crime thriller
maybe or a joke gone bad

entertains the civility
that the theory of light

can be disproven by
low laughter and hot lead
