early evening algebra The madwoman went marking X’s With a piece of school chalk On the backs of unsuspecting

Hand-holding, homebound couples. It was winter. It was dark already. One could not see her face Bundled up as she was and furtive. She went as if wind-swept, as if crow-winged. The chalk must have been given to her by a child. One kept looking for him in the crowd, Expecting him to be very pale, very serious, With a chip of black slate in his pocket.
