Boys and men in hats and wool kick rocks & boulders on the road the road is paved but strewn with chunks
of stone and pebbles bigger than a dictionary the real rocks could be styrofoam or papier-mâché caught in the air they exhibit a disturbing weightlessness & the men and boys seem full of happy silliness
It could be a football or soccer game with more balls than players though the stones aren't round in any way and set quite firmly on the pavement which appears to be a highway in the hills of some altitude as a piercing blue sky models three or four chops of white cloud
& by the shadows of the crowd on the blacktop it might be just after lunch when just returning to their task they stand awaiting their instructions on this day that seems somewhat out of the ordinary in their lives
