"A Youth on Van Ness
Santiago del Durdano Turann

The image refracted through windows
With heavenly light from the glow
Of beautiful features, a figure
Like buds at the end of the winter.
The Asian youth turned with a glance
(Might it have been just pure chance?)
That punctured the layered reflections
Of glossy smooth mixed gray distortions.
The backpack then tottered along,
It tapped to the hips perfect song
While passing through frames to flow on
Beyond the Academy on Washington.
