sorry to hear that you spilt your iced coffee.  that phrase "urban tectonic
shifts" was really cool and struck me for some reason.  i wrote a poem based
on your experience...enjoy!

Urban tectonic shifts
I know they happen
I see the result there
The slanty sidewalks
There under my feet
And down the street
The ones I don't see
I end up tripping over
Spilling my coffee
Over someone random
I think someone at TLC
Needs to get off their ass
And make a documentary
About this serious problem
Plaguing all of humanity
Otherwise more of us will fall
And more coffee will be spilt
On America's sidewalks
