In the Laboratory

bacteria samples

under the microscope



not quite sure what

she's looking for



endless slides of colonies



solutions growing

                   under her nose



still single at forty-five

she washes petri dishes



sharp eyes curious as a grandchild

always searching



and discovers herself
