A Memory

how odd to see person reading a book!
did you know before the cell phone
thumbs were used to turn pages?


The End

He prefaced each slap
with the words…’ I’ll show you…
the unfinished statement puzzled her.
One day she just up and walked out
She threw the words back at him, not in anger but rich with promise. ” ” No, I’ll show you”….
And she never looked back
the end.
