A Person Worth Knowing

Dawn Leas

From the book:


Waiting for the Senior Center Bus


Her body is a balloon

dressed in a grey down coat

on top of short legs thick

like tree trunks.


Every weekday, she leans

against a fire hydrant

curving into a comma

a caesura on daily life

to peer down an empty street.


Her round, frowning face,

an emoticon,

begging someone to come along

and ask who she once was.
