#092: familiar ground

standing at the corner

of cinema street

she saw her life in picture in picture

22 year old self in the bottom right corner

celebrating her first “career job” as an adult

with the clink of mugs carrying fresh mint tea

the other 75% of the screen

was her present day face in extreme close up

five minutes before her next job interview

other than the speckles of sweat, we see

the lines that grew from laughter

the marks from clumsy adventures

and eyes that still hold wonder
