The woman in the park

Watching a woman

in a park.

Specimen.

Distance.

Noting her contours

and her disposition.

Plays with her children.

Oblivious?

Aware?

Hair grey at the roots.

Breasts sag slightly.

Eyes dare not lift up

to look.

Dress faded

and unfashionably

too tight.

Pushes a swing.

Lost in the rhythm.

lost in the arc

that is

her life.
