David was sleeping on the floor
of his friend Robert's studio in Emeryville.
Robert was making a book of photographs about baseball caps,
David explained. He wasn't wearing a shirt.

The walls were covered with photographs of men in baseball caps.
Above me, a man wearing a baseball cap
was eating a piece of lemon cream pie.
Across his baseball cap's visor,
was a brilliantly colored picture of surf and a sunset.
The word "Hawaii" was embroidered
in yellow black-bordered letters.
