remains to be seen

sitting on a shade bench

cool under the trees

becoming part of the furniture

watching the people

showing out

see them checking

themselves

their reflection

in shop windows

tugging at hems

hands smoothing bumps

patting pulling hair

wanting to make

the best of

look good

& we understand

that for teens

they know deep

the world is watching them

but these older people

past first flush

the wonder is

who are they

showing out for?
