"I miss dinosaurs."
"Evolution, we’ve talked about this."
"But I miss them.”
"You turned them into birds, remember? It was the best you could do, given the circumstances.”
"It’s not the same."
"I know. I’m sorry."
"Can I at least make these cassowaries 50 feet tall?"
"Come on, you know that size didn’t work out so well before."
"Six feet, then? And over 100 pounds?"
"Yeah, that sounds better."
"And can I put weird prehistoric crests on their heads?"
"I don’t see why not."
"And can they slash people’s throats with their dagger claws?”
"Sure, pal, if that would make you feel better."
"I think it would. Thanks for understanding."
"You got it, evolution. Anytime."

New York City: Night

At night 

the city stars 

shine like supernovas  

in a vast 

urban universe.

And in the hours 

just before midnight 

during muffled increments 

of time 

when the city’s heart 

palpitates in time 

to the distant lullaby 

of the day’s remains 

dreams sleepwalk 

their way

through the 

alleys and streets.

New York City doesn’t have many alleys.This is an alley in lower Manhattan. This was taken on a quiet night with my Sony A99. 

I love the moments that occur when night falls and dreams roam the streets.
