Cross Walk

A crosswalk, graffiti covered walls and the temporary shelters of the unhoused under a highway in Oakland at night.

I’ve driven rapidly over this underpass hundreds of times. It never crosses my mind that I’m driving over the heads of others. The juxtaposition of the black and white crosswalk, the gold, glowing murals and the dark box shaped shelters of the unhoused is halting every time I drive through this underpass at night.
