One Door Closes
By Lisa Nielsen

Parched tobacco shreds crumble in my little fingers as I rummage through handbags, carefully translating loose change into future candy

I feel around in the dark.  I know this closet well.  The clothes layered with Chanel No. 5, the heels high, the pocketbooks bruised and cracked

The only lullaby is a man calling her name.  I will fall asleep on this leathery pile before they are done.
