Blinded by the Light

By Doris Dembosky, Westcliffe, CO

Slowing to a stop at an intersection,
I wait for a green light.
A homeless woman, old before her time,
stands at arm’s length; she stands too close.
She could reach out and touch my car
if she chose to do so.
She looks at me.
She dares me to look at her.
I look straight ahead.
