i just got in a car accident.

sort of.

an old guy rode his bike into the front passenger side of my car while i was turning left with a green arrow.

he rolled off the car, bent his bike rim & scraped up his forearm & i gave him the tijuana city of tomorrow shirt from my trunk for his bleeding arm & the $250 in my wallet for his rim.

he didn't want to call the cops, he didn't want to go to the hospital, he had a friend on a bike with him, also 40-50 y.o. homeless missing teeth dirty flannel glinting eyes agreeing i should leave before the cops come.

the front of my car is dented & scraped, i'm fine.

getting it

you reached out & said i got it
if i reach back i'm afraid
i'll get stuck

breaking yours
mine won't break
won't give it away
any more than i get
careful about one thing
and you should hate me for it
but never would

from "The Octopus and the Squid - The Soft Intelligence" by J.Y. Cousteau

The octopus is the chameleon of the sea. Or rather, the Proteus of the sea -- the modern-day embodiment of the mythological hero who escaped his enemies by constantly changing his form. Indeed, the sudden changes of color and form by means of which cephalopods attempt to throw their enemies off the track are called "protean manifestation." For cephalopods are excellent actors, with vast repertories, and they are able to play many roles by making use of stratagems which, on dry land, are usually found only in the theater: disguises, gestures, mime, poses and posturing.

The octopuses we encountered displayed all these tricks in abundance for our divers, just as they do for eels and groupers. Being without the natural protection of shells, they find safety only in flight or in disguises. They are undoubtedly the champions of hide-and-seek.

peace haiku 23-29

imagine them in
their underwear & know that
they want you to win

figs are full of red
sweet pulpy seeds to eat when
birds don't get there first

try best not to take
personally or assume
impeccable words

i hate your fear and
want you to be stronger than
i can imagine

push harder against
the tendency to just sit
there & do nothing

i'm sorry you cried
i tried to be honest &
gentle but couldn't

i can see past it
the walls of scars of blue pain
erupt swept away

not longing haiku 56-62

bored lady is painful to
look at forced phony

i don't trust you to
execute my ideas
where does that leave us

you poured paint in my
garden poisoned all of my
tomatoes bastard

you can't have lust's rush
and love's security at
the same time for long

petty pecking for
three years learn the lingo pass
bar you're a lawyer

jealous petulant
obstinate au contraire mon
frere get over it

same thing as before
different cast of characters
same thing as before
