window commentary

the man on the sidewalk
wears his umbrella strapped over
one shoulder like a soldier
dressed for battle:
intent on destiny or perhaps simply
destination, he strides
undaunted through the five
o’clock crush, paying
those drivers who pare
seconds and centimeters by crawling
curbside past him
as much mind as i
do Jesus or a steady
stream of thought.
