the paramount theater once stood on this site.
i saw King of Hearts here, twice.
when the theater burned down
the town visionaries decided to make an indoor park out of the space.
it's often entirely naked beneath the glass roof.
you can take shelter here from the rain,
watch the snow fall,
walk to the back and gaze at the lazy river.
there is no river inside the 'river garden'
there is no garden inside the 'river garden'
but any given day will find a dozen or so people in there,
reading, playing chess, dancing the wild fandango.
