A Diner

They sat in the 

milk of buzzing

lights above 

their wrinkled

clothes 


The waitress

was busy talking

to the fry cook 

who didn't have

enough orders

to distract him

from the lace

peaking through

her blouse 


The coffee was

stale and burnt 

but they kept

stirring silence

pouring cream

and letting

the spoon do

the talking 


When they left

it was morning

and they got 

stoned in the

parking lot


He drove her

home but he

did not kiss 

her goodnight

'I'm just kidding, darling. Don't worry. He's a good man. You did well sweetheart. He's a good man. You'll be fine.'

Hope's paper-thin smile tried to grow as she stared at her grandmother's reflection in the mirror. The mother-of-pearl grip sparkled in her grandmother's hand, bathed by the Chapel's cheap buzzing lights.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
