Caught in the act

Weathered, strained red eyes stare back.
“You. You’re screwing this up.”

Grooved wrinkles in a bloodless face.
“Why can’t you get it right. You’re such a screwup.”

Receding hairline. Desperate isolation.
“Forget it. You’re hopeless. I’m done with you.”

He shuts off the facet and turns away from the mirror.
Unexpectedly, a stall pops open.
Jason heads to the sink.

“Bill. How you doing man?”

“Hey Jason – all good. Didn’t realize you were in here.”

“Ha – funny story, I have a phobia about my shoes being recognized so I lift my feet.
…I heard you. Let’s talk Bill.”

  1. Oof. Glad he extended an invitation to talk.
