semblances

by mistersoto

fingers
through silhouettes
a following figure
with one leg
leading in front
it’s other advancing behind

around streets and squares
of a distant city
wrapped with worn
pavements
and routines
it’s citizens
hiding out

behind varied hues
of shadow and occupation
faces emerging
transmitted from watches
and partial recall
glimpsed

between appointments
kept and lost
and the catharsis
of lattes
semblances
slipping by
