A Poem Written in August 1993

I just found this poem I wrote on Friday, August 27, 1993. (at that point, I was officially engaged for 5 days!)
When I read old poems of mine, I pretty much recall having written them and what was going on at the time. If I recall correctly, this scene took place at a subway or bus station.

She wore one pink shoe,
She wore one white shoe --
She was blind.
I knew. I could tell --
She had a white cane.
She clicked around,
looking for an opening
 to go through.

Click, click. Tap, tap.
Bang, bang --

A tall blonde approached,
leaned close,
whispered some words.

An arm was extended.
A hand held on.
And they set off.
Click, click. Tap, tap.
A pink shoe
And a white shoe --

I love the mismatched shoes and the mismatched people. I was hoping someone would help her as she clicked around.
