While walking home from the subway station yesterday, all the trees were letting loose their leaves, like a psychedelic rain. I smiled as I walked up the hill, seeing the eddies waft the leaves to and fro in what can only be understood as dancing. I stooped to pick up some of the prettier leaves, each one a guaranteed original, no other one quite like it on earth. (and there's far more leaves than humans) Sometimes the leaves toyed with me, just scooting away as I reached down to grab one. I said, "I'm only going to try to get you three times." If they don't want me picking them up, hey, I can hang with that. Some of them heard me though or just let me pick them up. I brought them home to show you.
