An open window on a dreary afternoon...
CARTOONS AT FIRST AND FOURTH

A cartoon was on my street today ---
Tall, lean with rounded shoulders…
a stooped and lumbering stride.
His face an exaggerated profile,
an easy smile gave me pause:
Is this real?

With wide eyes I gazed around
seeing many more cartoons
differing in style and size ---
women, men, young and old.
A window was open for awhile,
and it caused me to stop and smile.
