puddling


new yorkers
 usually
 step back from puddles
 when a car is approaching 
especially
 those of us
 who have been splashed
 in the past

 but 
this morning 
i was hoping
 a car
 a cab
 a school bus
 would come close 
enough
 to be
 part of the reflection
 in the puddle 

after a minute or so of waiting
 i thought
what are you doing
 you have to get to the office 

so
 i settled on this image
