(2) ‘Fringe’ Series Finale: A Final Farewell – I’ll never look at a white tulip the same way again. What a fantastic ending. Now I have to find and photograph a white Playmobil tulip as a tribute.

At evening, casual flocks of pigeons make
Ambiguous undulations as they sink,
Downward to darkness, on extended wings.”
