lean

by Steven J. Serafiani

I slid open the window
the side without the screen
leaned out
it’s cold
freezing
took a sip of bourbon
it’s warm
burning
the parking lot looks like my love life
car space car space car space space space
it snowed today
fat flakes
but they didn’t stick
I get it
they didn’t want to linger in the empty spaces either.
