Wednesday, June 24, 2009: On the Street…Nicole, Berlin

What’s Between

There are two little girls on the sidewalk.
They are tearing at what’s between
The squares of cement. Their fists
Clamp bouquets of grass, shredded weeds,
The occasional limp clover or dandelion.
Somewhere, a lawn is being mowed.
A plane dawdles overhead, the size of a dragonfly.
Their drones are indistinguishable.


  1. Ooh, I love this... but want one more line to bring us back to the girls...something unexpected... love that this is what you got from this pic!
