Unexpected mist and a mercury drop
under a blue carpet and bold beams
of sun, she swept through me.
Tired muscles and exhausted posture
did not intercept the invasion,
barely registering the trespass.
The messages and comments of friends
buzzed my phone without pausing,
no genuflecting, no decelerating,
no lane changes to allow a pass
or a cut in line.
No hush, no pause in the hum
of new voices and old machinery
asking questions, seeking exchange.
She, right through the crowd, to center stage,
absorbing every inch of spotlight,
for just a second, no history, no memory, but
a moment, a beat where my mind stopped and
was captured, absorbed.
