dull, ordinary, jobless

It’s a dull, ordinary day here.

A gold & cream ’87 El Camino
pulls up at the corner of Dolores
& South Winchester, next to
The Church of the Valley;

I can’t see the driver inside,
but there must be one there.
I imagine them dressed in white
ordinary, clothes: T-shirt, pants.

They don’t have to get out for
me to see, I just imagine them
as typical Norcalifornians,
non-hispanic, anglo, jobless..

By now you know this isn’t
a fantasy, it's just about life
in pseudocyclically declining
Silicon Valley usa. Jobless.
