Memory made

April 10, 2013 § 1 Comment

A solo traveller

comes to a sudden halt

as though faced with a brick wall,

wheeled suitcase companion

stopped thigh high,

in a blur of coloured coats

and scarves

and places to be


Frowning gravely

he searches his pockets

with a rough palm

and grumbles as shoulders

swing by either side


Camera finally found

he stretches his arm out

as far away from his solid stance

as he can reach

his dark finger

darts to the button


And in a single flash

he bares his shiny teeth,

chin raised to the lens’ need

forehead as smooth as the sky,


A moment

delicately embroidered into the air

that disappears as fast as it came,

with a smack of closing lips,

into the crowd
