My Cardboard Box

This is the City*.

Joshua Tree, California.

It was a cool and sunny morning in Joshua Tree. Temperature was 65 or so, the sky was blue, and the birds were chirping. The natural food restaurants were already doing a brisk business. A deputy was parked in the lot with the engine running, doing his paperwork, quietly watching with one eye an early rising street-freak rummaging through the ‘Free’ box in front of the thrift store.

My name is Pappy. I carry a laundry basket.

* Okay, it’s not a city. But “unincorporated village” doesn’t have the same ring.
