TEMPORARY NOBODY

When you go somewhere as a

stranger you can blend in as an

unaware traveler avoiding name

introduction or needless small talk

while roaming unconcerned regarding

schedules wearing your favorite shirt and red

sneakers free of critical opinion you

pass a store window and smile back at

yourself then merge with the shadows of

a moving crowd weaving over sidewalks

like an overflowing river ignoring the

faces in passing as they press on to that

someplace where all strangers call home.
