Appal

Appal (2/25)

An old woman at the window of a brownstone
Staring in silence at the sun - trees waving themselves

I'm remembering an old woman in London
Sitting in front of a painting - examining the hands of figures

How glazed her focus - the slow crinkle in her eyes
The sun spots the glass and breaks over this new woman's blankets

It's a Polaroid - another outdated person
Flapping against the air and developing slowly into image
