Through the Gym Window - Dec. 21, 2022

I’m on the elliptical

trying to determine

what shadow puppet

the clouds are making

on the mountain this morning

when two black kids cut off

my vision pushing a cart

with sleeping bags bottles

boxes and clothes that

nearly sweep the sidewalk

as they pass I’m curious

did they ever play with light

spread their fingers in the sun

and giggle at what they saw

or imagine how their shadows

would someday look

moving through this

big bright world?
