i played “spook the squares” again tonight

where i drive around in the police car in berkeley, haunting those idiot streets

spooking all the squares there

and so on

hence the name

then i parked outside the auto zone on 27th street and smoked a cigarette and listened to music

the wind was blowing, it felt like fall

i hoped lauren would say hello or something, so i waited a while

she didn’t!

i went home
