The Cut-Across Lady

by Dan May
 
the cut-across lady
cuts between houses
prances on lawns

cavalierly
flicks her ashes
at my flowering crab

private matters not
property nor properly
observant looks

in the window
pane at my face
shortest distance

between points of
me-me-mine contention
why does she do it

good for her
