Above Stores and Behind Stars

I’ve walked this neighborhood so many years,
I’ve memorized the look of every place.
I gaze instead sometimes at what appears
above each independent retail space.
I note what must be offices or flats.
Apartments and compartments tantalize
imagination – urban habitats
and crooked shades revealing stored supplies.

It’s like rewatching favorite films so much
I start to pay attention to the sets
and extras, noting wallpapers and such,
instead of all the acting epithets.
There is no end to fascinating stuff
as long as I’m peripheral enough.
