• 326: An Event In Santa Fe

    by Rudolph Tenenbaum

    An event in Santa Fe.
    The grand opening of a cafe.

    The sign of a goose is above.
    The manager looks like a bum.

    No food. No drink.
    They invite us…to think!

    We are anxious to make a call.
    We are anxious to shop at the mall.

    Our printer requires new ink.
    But we think we might try to think.

    We arrive in a thoughtful mood.
    No drink. No food.

    Not even a tiny fig.
    But our thoughts our big.

    We reflect on life and on death,
    On the sky’s infinite depth,

    And on humans’ eternal strife,
    And, of course, on the meaning of life.

    We are anxious to make a call.
    We are anxious to shop at the mall.

    Our printer requires new ink.
    But we think we had better think.

    To us even building a fence
    Will make little sense

    Without knowing why
    We live and die.

    We decide to ignore the fuss.
    Of the time remaining to us

    We are trying to make good use
    While time’s cooking our goose.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
