the unseen past

King Street Station, Seattle with rubbing from Bill Will public artGlossy Words

You'll hit your head,
if you don't use
the unseen past

. . . . . . . .

Yet another bizarro and obsolete word of the day from the OED for the erasure poem|commentary: 'scouch.'

On my way to the bus this morning, I found a 'turtle green' crayon and picked it up. Peggy and I set out to sketch King Street Station and stumbled across some public art granite seats, sandblasted with quotes and images related to the railroad. The basis of this sketch is a rubbing from one of them. And it was fate: the CenturyLink Field sign and Sounder banner are, of course, turtle green!!
