MoP 23: Frontage


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 façade again composed
as if control had never slipped.
