Westwood,
and a homeless man
raises his hand
like a benediction
over the trash can.

On the street
old ladies promenade
like today-only ads
in yesterday’s newspaper.

Sunset,
and the sky is washed
in shades of mauve, then blue –
not like that steel-edged daytime hue –
but near and kind,
like a mother’s touch,
shelter for all her children.

--a gift from Alice, May 2003
