Cherry Blossom at the Mechanics' Hole

First it was magnolias, now cherry blossom. Even the mechanics' hole-in-the-wall garage on Rue Jean-Talon was infiltrated today with petals, petals that have bloomed and are falling and have fallen all over Montreal. The mechanics had petals on their shoes as they took their cigarette break and read the newspaper. Stacks of tires against the walls had petals all over them. The petals blew in on the men and the men did not drive them away. The men had petals in their hair.

Alice, I went to see the petals you told me about, heaped along Paragraphe Boulevard, and as I waded through them I lifted and flung handfuls pretending to be Primavera, to the amusement of students in tight shirts.
