selling

It was too hot
in the parking lot
the need for shade
was a case to be made
with no respect
for the architect

She was hauling
a black zippered nylon case
on dinky wheels
out of the Convention Centre

It looked like the end
of a very long useless
day in a long line
of very long useless days

It was too hot
in the parking lot
the need for shade
was a case to be made
with no respect
for the architect

Her shoes looked a little
too skuffed too high
her skirt was slightly askew
her hair a bit too red
her eyes a bit bagged

I could see
too many attempts
to attempt too much
you can face only
so much disinterest
so much rejection

And it begs one question:
who loves this woman?
and the answer
is no one, not even herself.

It was too hot
in the parking lot
the need for shade
was a case to be made
with no respect
for the architect
