Notice What You Notice

Laura Bronstein came over to my home
To drop something off from Henry

(He wasn’t able to get out much anymore
And he was gradually accepting help)

Laura noticed one of my shelves in particular
“So, you are into Simone Weil?”

“Yes, lately I’ve been working my way
Through Pétrement’s bio in French”

Laura said in her unshakeable tone
“I identify more and more with her”

Our eyes locked for several seconds
Before she turned to leave

And the thought occurred to me:
She’s the Categorical Imperative in corduroys
