171/366 - Tuesday Inspiration: Odd

2012.06.19
pixel
PB friend Jeff Cornish and I recently shot at Atlantic City's Casino district on the ocean boradwalk. This "TI" window display summed up the incongruity and absurdity of all that was around us. A mish-mash of "TI" sights, sounds and smells. It was a great shoot - but a pleasure to leave when our cards were filled.

Lesson Learned: You nurture an appreciation for the beautiful things in life by standing among the ugly things in life - on your own terms - and then walking away when the time is right.

Going Cold Turkey

Stand at any corner…
Let your senses absorb -
Like sponges - the sights –
The sounds – the smells.

Let the soaked-up goop – that
Awful stew of absurdity…
Seasoned with dissonant herbs –
Assault your taste and smell.

Then… for good measure – one more fix.
Slowly walk away – never look back…
Find a quiet bench in a park –
And read lovely poems to willing ears.
