Increasing Imbalance

Increasing Imbalance

She was walking toward us
on the cobble stones
an ice cream
cone in each hand.

One cone she held
at the end of
an out stretched arm,
carrying it to an unseen recipient.

The cone in her left hand
she pulled to her lips,
then away.
And repeated lapping

As one cone diminished
in mass she seemed to struggle
against a greater imbalance
in her forward staggering

Rum raisin?
