What's going on?
Is it a drive-by closet?
A roadside instant shop?
Someone's migrated balcony?
Probably all of them.
What came first, the clothes or the tree?
Tree, clothes hanging to dry, wind and road -
They look like they have always belonged together,
even though we learnt they are not supposed to.
Another example of how little we really know
how poor generic design is
and how immensely rich the world is,
if we are able to see it!
