and scaffolding.
hopeful enough
to whisk you away,
as we do eggs.
an omelette glazed
with sweetness opportune.

a never-ending smile
and a sip of orange soda.
on a marble floor,
she showcases
the summer
of one hundred pencil skirts.
a name, a date, an honest friend.

hearing from bus to bus.
woman from the side
reminds her,
“straighten your blouse.”
smooths in accordance
and waves “thank you.”

when summer comes,
her fingers will snap
a born appreciation
for synthetic leather
burnt, mean and foregone.
