three for late summer, early fall

Closing

a window

in my thin white sundress.

.

Lit by blue headlights,

white raindrops

splash whiter.

.

Just before

the subway door closes–

I grab a churro for the ride.

.

Churros are Mexican pastries sold on New York City subway platforms– wands of deep fried dough dredged in coarse sugar and cinnamon.
