Personal Day

Bench

Today, the bench by the Riviera has taken the day off.

It asks that amorous couples keep their hands to themselves
and that birds find some other high ground to roost upon.

Leaves that linger will be swept away by the wind
and any baggage left unclaimed will be checked
by a raccoon guard who works for the odd discarded pretzel.

Today, the bench by the Riviera is not on duty.
Today, the bench by the Riviera has the view to itself.
