Drama Queen


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
