Look again, and see the woman
in the red dress,
racing through the silk
across the ancient Place
like thousands, no millions before,
–poets, patriots, pioneers–

No sleek limousine for this woman,
just one lone motorcycle waiting.

In full stride,
She crosses centuries of silk,
Swinging her arms free.
