The light said go
when you had asked
me to stop. In between
the green luminance
of pure, icy emerald
and the red luster
in your eyes a choice
has been made
liminal as the state
of my circumstance.
I looked at you
with the eyes of a
commuter running
late for work cut
suddenly by a
panhandler; no
flashbacks nor any
regret, just a fleeting
acceptance of fate
and privilege.
Without a word
around I turned
and sauntered
to follow the light
across the street.
