Poetry

hotel lobbies

hotel lobbies
secrets behind closed doors

strangers avoiding eye contact
businessmen in women’s clothing
women in men’s clothing
hustling to the elevator 
going down
moving up
unheard violence 
voices snicker
stench of cologne lingers
frosting the air with musk
stiletto heels pound the floor
leaving echoes marks on the boards

hotel lobbies
secrets behind closed doors
