At Union Square surprisingly
rose petals that one associates with weddings and welcomes in Morocco.
On 22nd Street on a windshield
Pin oak leaves in the gutter looking up
and after the rain
Robert Schmid's studio a work in progress.
leaves, sheets of paper land in a heap
the people get cut out and the light shines through the tracing paper
the people get taped and glued to the sky
then they lie about on the radiator
getting a bit curled up in the heat. here they are dropping out of the sky a bit like angels in Tiepolo paintings
