Girl Brushing Her Hair in a Window


You round a highway
curve as you drive
through an unknown city,
on the way to somewhere
else, and glimpse in a window’s dim
proscenium—curtain of shadow
behind it—the arm
raised, the sweep,
swathe of darker dark
re-collecting,

and know nothing
about her except
she’ll never be
encountered,

and are inspired
with such
tenderness—as if
your own
were a story
lost.
