Rain and post-rain diary

A few things I have seen in Echo Park in the last two days: my breath thick in the air. Twenty soggy padded bras, of the same size and tan color (it appeared), laying in a heap and then scattered on the asphalt. One safe, its door removed, laying box-open, on the street. The face of an old television, affixed to the angled stump of a tree. Green shoots of grass everywhere, growing as fast as they could. Hawks with wet wings circling for exercise over Elysian Park. A wet, abandoned couch, with cat claw marks, on Ewing St. Blue skies and gray skies. Dropping interest rates.

A notice in my inbox warned The Fast & Furious would be fast and furious tonight on Montana, 1700 block. They're to be working a quite civilized 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at breakneck speed. Chop chop. Expect squealing tires.
