8.26AM

A cold morning walk
Rows of parked cars
Our eyes avoiding contact
Your presence ahead
Paths about to cross

“Sup”

Initiated question.
Deliberating my response.
Truthful? Or small talk.
Time? Or in a rush.
A pause lasting less than a second.
Decide. Act.
Wanting to stay.
Laugh about a witty quip.
Share a moment
Of your time.

Mouth open
The moment passed
You look ahead

“Maybe I’ll stop”

“Next time.”
