Casual steady.

the morning, an unshaken
snow-globe. sky blue
of a foot on a tile. I drive to work
quietly, like you
going to the bathroom
to put on a pad
on the morning your period
starts. around me, people flow,
casual steady,
all blinking and sleepiness
in the clarity of mist-morninged
light. stepping politely
to the side
of the pavement,
holding their coffees
in hot paper cups.

    Hello DS —
    “in the clarity of mist-morninged light…” is wonderful.
    Also, thank you for your acknowledgement of my “Leon’s Dream.”
