Monday, January 19, 2009: On the Street…Via Tortona, Milano

She lost a glass earring
As she ran to flag
The taxi that was speeding
And would have gotten her
To her class on time
Instead she boarded a bus
Stepping from the curb
Over a tangled necktie
Lurking in the gutter
Like a coiled snake
Later she would see
Her left earlobe bare
And imagined her green bauble
Laying in the street
A tiny glass eye
