alfred e newman birthday holiday observation schools closed candy counter open dreams 
and memes and things and bron and kd d'd up lil steffi in the corner
thick carstream all day at Colusa crows duelling traffic for scraps on Ave reckless unafraid
and getting away w/it flap off untouched, whereas deer and people
don't have wings Batty dame named ellen next block up's
huge demented german shep barks savage aggro @ passersby there are few passersby
though traffic passes and you can't dip a toe in same madness more than an infinite number of times 
while savage hound froths calm batty unfazed Ellen sprinkles bird food on batty homemade feeder 
balanced atop gate with sign In This House We Believe Science Is Real for Betty imperious
crow queen who rules loudly swoops from treetop far above honking barking mad street 
cold sharp NE wind blowing many a meaning down from Weed and away
