Nameless Employee This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Nameless employee
Slouched against
A familiar grocery

Watches unfamiliar faces
Clad in coats
Dodge stray plastic bags
Whipping by their ankles

Averting left
He exhales
A last smoky wisp
Before carelessly dropping
A cigarette to the ground

He watches it fall
Too slowly
Only to snub the flame
With his sneaker
Attention now returns
To the busy shoppers

Our Eyes Meet
