As I Walked

past the Rite Aid there was a woman exiting and a woman entering only the automatic door had shut and was un-responsive while both women took several steps back and forth surprised and unsure of what to do the door remained closed for the amount of time it took me to walk the distance of the threshold across its doorway which was about five steps maybe give or take one and another woman approached the door and her walking slowed and the three of them looked at one another and at the door as I watched their faces startled eyes wide slightly parted lips slightly smiling expressing awkward confusion but then enough seconds had passed that someone’s heart fluttered and she thought what’s happening and for a moment a woman was trapped inside the Rite Aid foyer and we all watched helpless.
