A WALK IN THE WIND AND THE RAIN
A concrete walkway, perhaps wide enough for a car: fenced,
a few weeds, some leaves. A man in a blue jacket opens a door
into a blank-faced building.
Against a plain concrete wall one block long, one woman
waits beneath the bus stop sign -- a flag of cheerfulness,
even though brown.
The black brick jumping tower
at the fire station, a tree in front, a crow overhead,
and no one to walk or run or jump...
on the other hand, does not lend
itself to blankness.
