Concealed Cane

When not in use,

it’s folded, tucked under my arm

or stuffed in a back pack.

When I step outside,

I pull free the nylon holding it together.

It unfolds, clicks into place.

I walk away, ready to face adversity.

  1. Abbie–What a clever title and fresh perspective on the white cane! You were definitely thinking like a poet when you created the idea for treatment of your topic. Good luck with the new book! When I voted for your new book several weeks ago, I received an extremely nice confirmation e-mail/letter from you and much appreciated the acknowledgement. Alice
