August 2017




Portrait

rainbow badge
on the backpack
at the sandalled feet
of the Tufts student

 

she and I sit patient
in the stilled trolley
at Lechmere Station
ten in the morning

 

slight & slender figure
twentythree at most
closecropped hair
and modest hornrims

 

soft semi-smile

as she sits reading
the Boston Metro
& the trolley starts
