Toward the Bus Shelter

You walked fast across the empty courtyard,
and I followed brisk behind. It would have looked
like I was chasing you. The tails of the scarf I bought you
were trapped beneath your backpack straps,
and you stopped to unstrangle yourself.

The lavender sky was cloudless, or all clouds.
My eyes streamed with the wind.

"the lavender sky was cloudless, or all clouds"

gorgeous. so much, in fact, i think "it was hard to tell which" might be unnecessary.

Oh, wow, the exact same line I was going to quote! It is a perfect one.


Just lovely.
