#477. for new amsterdam market

July 31, 2011

it’s quiet in the noisy market
as purple kholrabi scream
hot malaysian cashews
chatter with the old
tiny women over
locally grown 
sour cherries
volunteers groan
and shave ice blocks
out the highway moaning
with the muffled shade made
in the noise of the quiet market

    Wonderful verbal snapshots of the market.

    descriptive and melancholic visuals for the market. a poignant stillness of everyday scenes we tend to think as ordinary.
