Poetry Silver Lake style

Silver Lake Verite
       by lalo kikiriki
The boy with the Dodger hat
on backwards
is ordering a 9-grain
egg and cheese
bagel at Winchell's.
"It's delectable!"

he tells his friend,
"So many grains!
So much fiber!"

He's a good-looking boy and
I marvel at his language.
I'm not kidding –
he speaks in exclamations!
His Dodger hat is,
incongruously,
in Raider colors,
black and gray.
He sings along
with Enrique Iglesias
"No me digas de amor,"

and he says he's Jewish
by law
since his mom
is Jewish,
but he looks a little like
Bonnie Prince Harry,
fair hair and zircon gaze:

"I'm likely to denigrate on that one,"
he admits.

 

So many grains!
So much fiber!

If I could give you one thing in this world, it would be the ability to see yourself as others see you.

That way, you would
realize what a truly 
amazing person you are.

SILVER LAKE TIME BANK

Silver Lakers and nearby folks are welcome to join Silver Lake Time Bank. Check out the About tab on Facebook. Here's one story of SLTB adventures from Lee Conger.

My Time Bank Story for today: Several weeks ago, when Katie from West Adams Time Bank bicycled over here to Silver Lake to help me with unspecified projects, I decided we should go harvest lemons from the un-monitored tree I spotted along the L.A. River several weeks prior. She and I walked and walked, bearing picker and bags, but I had us on the wrong stretch, so we never found the tree. Embarrassing. Recently I made a point of finding the tree and documenting its location. This morning, I saw Leonardo's request for lemons and was able to take him directly there. About 1/3 of the tree hangs over a fence; the fruit drops and rots. We began harvesting. And then the 'Time Bank Miracle' happened. When we offered lemons to passersby, they turned out to be the owners of the tree on the other side of the fence. They were delighted that the lemons would be used. They offered us grapefruit, too. They were interested to learn about the Time Bank and the Neighborhood Fruit Harvest Project and were happy to accept my offer to deliver them a bag of kumquats sometime soon. (Whose story is next?)
