91x365 – I saw her fall

in the Rideau center pedestrian underpass

impeccably office-dressed woman
on ice, sprawling, cursing, sputtering
punching snow, infuriated scream

stumbled off, limping, crying,
putting her glasses on

complete loss of balance and decorum
refreshes; inward shown outward

what appearances kept, why?
