in the park
a foundling, this
precocious female child
in her stroller - 
fawn-colored skin
her unself-aware camouflage
in this urban setting 
too young yet
to draw 
these types of distinctions,
her small laughter, 
a cultural legacy
of those who crossed
the land bridge to this
their dawns gone unremembered.

 Jon Bohrn (2006)
