Clark Street Station elevator, August 12th, 2016
A man with a pink rose walked into the elevator, followed by a woman in a pink jumper. They stood apart – strangers. Overwhelmed by the narrative possibility of the pink and by the charisma of the two, I asked if I could take their picture together. They jumped into the role. Down near the platform everyone uploaded the pix. Mara and I got onto the train together and I asked her to write a poem.
In the mirrored elevator
A metallic moving box
3 souls connect
As the artist merged the colors
In the bustling heat of New York City
Here’s the photo:
