Honk-Honk, Kiss-Kiss

10 December 2018 – There you are, deep downtown, whacked by noise & jostle. The usual cacophony, with a seasonal extra thrown in.

Horns, sirens, brakes, tires, walk-light tweets, a passing cement mixer, feet, bikes, sharp elbows, sharp tongues, clich√© Christmas music on scratchy PA systems ¬†…

Then, waiting for the light to change, you look up.

Up into the tangle of poles & wires & signals.

Right up to …

the mistletoe.

Kiss-kiss.
