Winter on Astor Street

Winter on Astor Street
 
                  The Gold Coast, Chicago
 
Beneath the canopy,
a doorman holds
a cast-iron door that lets
 
an ancient duchess issue.
Swathed in a silver gown
she tugs her sable cape
 
tight around a tumor
that nice young doctor 
will announce tomorrow.
