Momentarily Betwixt

I stand on the medium strip,

freeze-framed

between the coming and going

of others,

in the face of their intent and haste

 

Grit has slipped into my sandals

causing added discomfort

 

Tentatively, I wait

for the whisper of a break

in the volume of traffic,

time enough to make a dash across

 

This pause

midstream,

betwixt and between,

grit swept up

by time and others passing

 

is forgotten

as I take my next safe step
