MoP 23: Frontage


In the early morning
they are close-eyed, close-mouthed
internal industry masked
by external stillness
Sometimes yesterday can be seen
sometimes today idles impatiently
sometimes expression bursts out
running late for school
late for train
ready for work

Next lap,
calm has returned
the fa├žade again composed
as if control had never slipped.
