Midday at the Library

 

Noon!

Time for the sun
to hide from the grey staircase.

Time for the faces
to dance on its steps.

White faces, black faces
Painted faces, veiled faces.

The staircase is now covered
with mouths
eyes
and ears

But I
a mere observer
watch my vision
disappear into the centre.
