Paul sits on his blanket in the park, drinking
           an avocado kale protein shake.  A nearby girl is
           wearing  a Sonic Youth T-shirt that is identical
           to his own.  He makes eye contact and attempts a
           personal connection.  The face of the girl wears
           a  neutral expression.   He picks up his blanket
           and smartly executes a tri-corner fold. He walks
           to another part of the park. He puts his blanket
           on the ground.  He considers the avocados in his
           protein shake, wondering if they are fair trade.
           The T-shirt was  probably her boyfriend's,  Paul
           reflects.  It looked a little big.  He thinks of
           small hands picking fruit in Paraguay.
