Pale Green Things

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 26, 2015, 10:39 AM
got up before dawn
went down to the racetrack.
riding with the windows down
shortly after your first heart attack.
you parked behind the paddock,
cracking asphalt underfoot,
coming up through the cracks

pale green things
pale green things

we watched the horses run their workouts.
you held your stopwatch in your left hand
and a racing form beneath your arm,
casting your gaze way out to no man's land.
sometimes I'll meet you out there
lonely and frightened.
flicking my tongue out at the wet leaves

pale green things
pale green things

my sister called at three a.m.
just last december.
she told me how you'd died at last, at last
and that morning at the race track was one thing I remembered.
I turned it over in my mind
like a living chinese finger trap.
seaweed and indiana sawgrass

pale green things
pale green things

—“Pale Green Things,” The Mountain Goats

My pleasure. I watch very few photographers and really enjoy your work -- especially the shots of and around Glastonbury Tor. And you have a great eye for shots on the fly, as well. :heart:
