OBSERVATION OUTSIDE CHARTRES CATHEDRAL (JULY 2012)

Woman on a bench
lights a cigarette,
then, with her cigarette-holding hand,
tries to put on sunglasses
and, with her camera-holding hand,
tries to position herself
to take a photograph.
She fumbles,
she mumbles,
she almost drops the glasses,
puts the cigarette in her mouth,
puts the camera on the bench,
tidies the glasses on her face
in a moment of sense to avoid a mishap.
Then, finally, she takes the photo
as a half-inch of ash drops onto her lap.
