Bird’s Eye to Landscape

(Photo credit: K. Shawn Edgar)

From mountain,
airplane,
high places,
you are a repetition;
an easily recognizable pattern,
of farms and city blocks.

Occasional
backyard
swimming pools.

Although,
once submerged
within,
you are wheat shafts, and
you are creameries.
You are stick-built houses, and
you are back ally
brawls.

Down here,
nice ‘n low,
it’s all tumbled
paper coffee cups,

oil spots, and
transmission sounds.

Up close pattern
pieces
recognizable to
local eyes who localize
the details.
