Combat

From the collection Catch Up With Summer, published summer 2015.

Combat

Her feet
in their hard-heeled shoes
strike each hard stone stair hard
all the way down
two floors.
The steps yield nothing in the harsh, clipped
exchange that
while it is of short duration
it is fierce
and it is angry.

  1. Oh, I can just hear her. I wonder why she’s so angry–or what she had to prove. Maybe just being a woman in that place. OK, I guess I have the story now. Haha.

    Love the collage, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
