Lunch Hour

She had the voice
of a broken
cemetery angel,
hands folded in prayer
over a grave
whose name has faded
to the seasons,
today verdant,
tomorrow leaf blown
and gray.
I longed to listen
forever
but at length
had to turn away,
tossed some coins
in her cup, and through
the sidewalk millions,
quickly made my way.
