Ode to the Woman in a Sari Who Walked Around My School Every Morning

October 19, 2017

She wore clunky gray sneakers
and a sunrise on her chest
Stark white braid on brown skin,
stride matching the contrast
of a red teardrop gracing her brow
The light never grew bright enough
to see her eyes.

Maybe I just stopped seeing her.
