Sun's a Crowd (Let's Go Home)
16x20" acrylic on canvas
2016

Bright, shiny sun.
Too bright.
Too shiny.
People all over the place going this way and that way.
Red light.
Hot, shiny sun.
Someone cutting me off. Someone not using their signal.
Circling to find a place to park.
Sun in my eyes.
Burning my skin.
People walking in the middle of the parking lot.
Red light. Stop. Someone crossing. Stop.
Slow slow slow.
Stop.
I just want to get home.

Or, maybe one day:

The sun is shining. The sky is blue.
I have a car to go run errands. A post office nearby. Traffic lights.
Money to buy candy.
A community.
Yay.

Or, maybe:

I should eat something.
