Comparing Angels

NYC Top of the Rock Pano

Two women sit at a café table.
One complains of an encroaching debt,
of fretful children,
of a numbing job,
and a husband that forgets.

Her companion complains
of a vacation that will
cost more then she can afford,
the shoes
she bought on sale,
the job she dreads,
and how her children’s wants
are necessary.
Her divorce settlement
didn’t come through.

On a subway grate
sits a woman
with an empty cup.
Her sign reads
” Define me.”
