You see these abandoned shopping carts all over Santa Barbara. I have it
on good authority that this tree is nowhere
near a market. Trader Joe's? Twenty-minute walk east. Ralph's?
Ten-minute walk west. The cart didn't roll here by itself. It's not one
of those homeless chariots, laden to the point of metal fatigue with
plastic bags barely encasing lord knows what. I don't even know who I'd
approach to get pointed in the direction of where I might possibly find
something like answers. Not to get all Resnais on you, but:
"I am not responsible," says the street crackpot.
"I am not responsible," says the bored adolescent joyrider.
"I am not responsible," says the confused, foreign grandma.
Then who is responsible?
