Scene & Heard: Shirt, Shoes, No Service

on November 17, 2009

You see the darnedest things in Northwestern Oakland during an evening constitutional. That’s how we happened upon this heap of raiment on Sunday night on Genoa Street near 56th. This curious clump of clothes reads like the droppings of some afternoon wanderer who, seeing that it was opposite day, elected to obey the inverse of the old adage, “No shoes, no shirt, no service.”
