The Poster

thin bodies

shadow-step overlapping circles

individuals avoid
one another | a disabled woman
revolves in her wheelchair

two youths

sit under the plinth

for settlers | in a grey

geographic unity of frost & snow
frozen beads of winter speak | locals

live in their coats

a native autonomy

feels at risk | a covetous

factor intrudes | the mosaic of morning

becomes distorted |

two lovers

whisper close to each other’s lips

the poster of a mother
looks out on the grey street | her child
graffiti’d | looks out on the grey street

passers-by | hoping for more time

grab at phantoms
