Beirut Journal Day #26: That Which You Fear the Most Could Meet You Half Way

12.3.09

Mariame idles
outside the Bliss St. Tobacconist
a yellow Labmorghini
double parks the driver
dressed to the 9's
hair coiffed
bullet proof under a shield of product
that holds everything down
that keeps everything in its place
A burgundy Mercedes taxi
fender-bent
sputters by
smoke seeps from
her nose she inhales
exhaust.
