Minor White, Windowsill Daydreaming, Rochester,1958

Oh, the coming-out-of-nowhere moment
when,  nothing
happens
no what-have-I-to-do-today-list
maybe  half a moment
the rush of traffic stops.
The whir of I should be, I should be, I should be
slows to silence,
the white cotton curtains hanging still.
