She Was Cool

 And she was

She was cool  

Beautiful &

      Dangerously smart

         With obeisant postures.


      And, she walks level.

      She walks level


          She is on the face

            Of Mother Earth.


        I watched her as she stood

            Hands & cheek pressed against

             The glass of the apartment window

            Gazing over a concrete dawn

            In & out of the shadows of NYC

             The eastern sun falling on the

               Park’s green grass and giant rocks.
