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.
