Strawberry Kool-Aid Hair

with Ribbons

~

strawberry Kool-Aid hair

with ribbons

she pushes the button

to cross Dundonald

serious with her boyfriend

her backpack heavy

~

she is like

the student on roller blades

skilled with traffic

not slowing near the top of Regent

reckless to the river

~

or the man

a block from here

a man with a briefcase

leaning across the fence

making a bouquet

of pussy-willows

~

~

All my best.

Stay safe.

Jane
