Poetry by Diane Webster
The old woman resembles a fallen L
as her torso parallels the sidewalk.
As she stops to talk, a robotic pulley
system creaks silently in motion
hoisting her upright like a ship’s sail
except only a trial run at anchor.
After the conversation, she leans
into her L — a lovely old lady
laughing and delicate
as milkweed silk.
