Miss Independent on the Shores of Lake Michigan

I am walking along the promenade

it is 10:19am and already

the Chicago sun is burning and signs flash for heatwave. Americans

crowd into the yacht club, preferring to sail above the blue

than walk by it. I am thinking –

why? There is nothing more freeing than


A man went by and referred to me as a girl, but he is wrong. 

I am alone, woman and strong.
