It happened outside my door one Saturday afternoon

My Amazon author page!!!!

She paused

for a moment taking

a drag on

her cigarette

until the ember touched her fingers

and she winced

dropping the lit

cigarette to the ground

where it engulfed

a soggy piece of paper on the sidewalk

she looked down for a moment

as if to say “my bad”

but words were spoken

and she moved quickly to the doorway

the doorman

paused during the cigarette

now springing into motion

throwing the door to the wind


without a nod

she went inside

and the doorman

back to his quiet repose

standing asleep by the curb…
