Office sidewalk

I pretended
the cracks
could only be breached
by machete;

something with too many teeth
close on my heels,
the glass building ahead
a place of safety
(since souls don’t count).

When I walked in
composed but a little ruffled,
men in suits looked at me sideways
not realizing how far I voyaged
to get here.
