When I saw the circles in the parking lot, it was
as if I'd seen the moon at my feet.
Crews were adding a new seal coat to a nearby
parking lot, with sections marked off as they
progressed across the expanse of asphalt.
It looked as though the moon was being balanced in
the night sky by strategically placed strokes
of sumi-e, creating what appeared to be minimalist
ink paintings in the middle of a strip mall.
