to pet something. Walking to the #4 bus stop i Thought i saw a woodland creature... a big one in someone's side yard but when i took another look it was Gone! i vaguely remembered these silly rich people having like a Fake deer ... but it wasn't There. So i continued on thru the universalist church parking lot with a hankering to see animals in their natural habitat. like in a rescue situation, a sanctuary perhaps....i felt curious & wanted to experience somethin' Out of the ordinary...on South St. i spotted these nopales & decided to pet them instead.
i told Pop-pops how they felt like skin..on cold bloated flesh..like maybe a smooth lizard.
