COLLECTIVE GOLIATH
There used to be a moon leading like a star would.
There used to be people, crowds of them in the auditorium park.
There used to be corn soup vendors late into the wee hours of morning.

Street festivals are a historic memorabilia.
Something kids will google with enthusiasm.
Curiosity feeding the research fire.

It took only the tiniest of living things to make of us all a collective Goliath.

  1. Sadly that Goliath is still a mystery and must still be treated with suspicion and avoided if possible. I hate to think that maybe humanity itself may have done something to make matters worse. Let's hope Covid will be controlled but theres probably much more effort to be made first.

  4. An monstrously impactful giant, invisible to the naked eye. Troubling, indeed, GC. You're making my sunny Wednesday morning feel like Monday's midnight nightmare. Thanks a bunch.

  11. Isn't that so true, we think we're David but in reality we're Goliath, too big to know how something so small can be completely devastating.

  16. People are quite gung ho to drop the masks. I feel that this is premature. I'm going to keep wearing mine. I'm disinclined to go among crowds anyway, but I would like to see the eventual return of festivals, at least things like the festivals in the little towns in the area where I live.
