#97

Furtive grin on a featureless form
Standing precariously on a street corner
Evil fingers twist the cold
Of an early-fall late-night street lamp post
Symphonies of stilletos ring
Through muddled laughs of leather loafers
The faceless guise unphased by waves
Of printed silk bustling closer
Itchy fingers twitch beneath
Heavy folds of a woolen cloak
The way shifty eyes dance beneath
The sagging hood, a measured slope
Breathing shadow, sight unseen
A practiced hand slips between
Folds of pocket, clasp of purse
Magnetic fingers – thieving curse
