Drama Queen

She

Sat down

spread her legs

leaned against the evening wall

looked ahead at the sky

reddening in anguish

held the coffee mug

close to her chest

for warmth

a twitter here

a rustle there

the feet cold

rub against each other

eyes steady in hope

and a trace of arrogance

locked at the gate

she held her smile

her teeth cackling

in the small tub

she said

raising her voice

” if death be you

hurry up

time is right for a new adventure

she winked”

a head looked up

nodded and

looked down

at the scrolling screen

rolling eyes

said

‘drama queen’
