Walking over the bridge towards me, a man pushes a woman in a wheelchair. The woman is broadfaced, perhaps Thai, in her forties. Sightless, she lifts her face to the sun. The man is sixty-ish, Nordic, rednosed, weatherbeaten. How devotedly he pushes her! What great love is this?

this grey morning
breeze off the Arctic
cools the summer
the coffee tastes
just slightly bitter
