words and art by w a l t e r w s m i t h

I just had to share this very powerful and delightful prose/poem by Claudia. What a fantastic journey she weaves.

jaywalking the moon


i’m neither poet
nor a writer, rather someone,
walking the lanes of life
like an autumn day
(just half an hour during lunch break),
caught in bus pane back reflections,
uuhhh—the world
spins fast,

My boss says “we should have a closer look at how you sit at the computer–“ ergonomics & workplace safety. He rings up the maintenance man, who carries a set of allen keys and (shrrkk, shrrrrk, sorry, i– )  Desk & chair, finally adjusted, truly sized to my proportions.

we talk indian summer,
(my curly haired colleague and i)
of biking mornings over hills with mist,
wetting the valleys and the mountains
in the back & that we can’t wait
‘til the leaves clothe red&yellow,

i find traces of an owl &
watch the spider spin its web, ivy
crawls with bright green feet, up up
the trees, clings tight, just like we all do

    • I forgot to mention how cool the photograph is as well. So retro. A NYC feel.
