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


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.”
