A Needle Woman

I arrive.
a street in the world
waves of a human ocean ebb and flow
contemplating them coming and going

I stand.
a moment of breathtaking humanity
I had to stop on the spot
a silent still scream

I know.
the meaning of my walking
a thousand questions weaving through
a journey of compassion that never ends
an axis of time and space
an androgyne
a needle.
