When Do I Have to Be There?

Almost time for rent again.

It’s as if my life were a series of appointments, one right after another. When I’m dead, I’m going to be late for all of them.


Dark lipstick always reminded me of her. She was so different from all of the paler women that I had dated.

Shades with names like rum raisin and dark currant triggered memories of her laugh.

That damn infectious laugh of hers.
