She walks, definite and
stopping a dance determined
by signs advising “No,”
but grace falling and a
trembling like flowers?
Too eye-lined and glitter
when “stardust” be half-flutter
and travel by hop, hop,
stutter, shake off shrapnel
of neon, tell of greeting-
card shot, mass transit
contained in the smallest gesture.
