Light, Squared

Day 15 PAD Challenge. Prompt: A "profile" poem.

lights from Broadway, park-
bordered, reflect your profile as you
grip the steering wheel and peer
upwards at the traffic lights,

triune brights under a curtain
of rain

your lovely bones casting their
long shadows still, the
spare movement across the
stage and October and
burning, always again and
ever the light streams
through windows, many-paned,
trees turned to gold, again, again, again

oh, not knowing and yet
knowing, the voices, always,
carrying through the clear air,
an echo of memory when night gives way to day,
sun glinting on copper domes green-smithied
