Running around in circles

A tall thin chaotic woman

Underground at Penn Station

Her body leaning forward

Arms and legs flailing to catch up

Slightly like a toddler

While we wait drink chat listen watch

A dark navy gingham blouse

Probably purchased with care

Spots of sweat expanding to pools

With each roundabout

She continues ignored by vendors

A phrase loud and incomprehensible

Except for “fuck” and “her” and “bitch”


I find myself equally curious, scared, and envious of her madness, bravery, and stamina.
