A Portrait

The rainbow badge
on the backpack
at the sandalled feet
of the Tufts student


sitting patient
in the stilled trolley
at Lechmere Station
at ten in the morning


this slight & slender figure
twentythree at most
her closecropped hair
and modest hornrims


and soft semi-smile
as she sits reading
the Boston Metro
& the trolley starts

Life itself as metaphor. That's enough. Very good.
