Puddles

Gutter Puddle

Puddles

Puddles contain much
in little—by reflection,
clearly, but also by
refraction, as the light
passes through the
water to reveal what
lies beneath the upper
distraction. We ignore
this truth at our peril,
for when we step into
an innocent-seeming
puddle, the waiting mud
may ruin our favorite
pair of shoes or socks
or, heaven forbid, our
sexiest pair of slacks.
