Missing its Mate


A sock turned up down and out in an alley in Downtown Albuquerque. Its mate was missing. Socks generally mate for life, but as everyone knows, socks can go missing, and you end up with single socks that are not much good without their other halves. Missing socks have become a serious enough matter…




When Bruce came in this morning he showed me a photo of this spoon and syringe he saw in the alley behind the office. The alley is very busy with pedestrian and vehicular traffic, but when I left this afternoon, the spoon and syringe were still there, unmoved, like a broken cross.
