Walking into the booth in the far corner

Aching heart

Hair pulled tight, pants ironed, and fingers painted


Blue and Red

Only a shade brighter

Than the curtains worn from expressions of scorn

And on the table

Two choices lie in either fingertip

One painted red

The other, blue

A legacy on the line

Decided with

Eyes closed

A deep inhale

A slight push of the finger


Red and blue now replaced with a tainted white
