remember

A black woman with a triumphant smile raises a pair of golden sunglasses out of an open white dustbin bag. Her hand waves above her head, signalling victory.  Her colleague street sweepers, some 20 meters back, acknowledge the gesture, lost and found, then swoop their bodies back down in their task and move on. I cycle past and absorb this special event on the last sunny Monday morning of the autumn of the year.
