“Goodbye to the Day”
by Bonnie Athouriste
An impressive unveiled house
Six doors glassed-in
Evening ribbon first flight before the switch
The old agreed to the new…more than new.
The transition…scattered art portraying resilience
Value the day’s last departure
Grab the gift!
Limited previously, now available to many.

There she is. Right on time.
Five o’clock. On the dot.
Folding laundry while watching TV.
It’s like she plans this every Tuesday.
Five o’clock. Not a minute late.
God, she’s breathtaking.
How did a woman that beautiful
End up living across from me?
I wish I could talk to her,
See what eye color matches that
Silky golden hair.
It feels so wrong to stare at her
Like this. But I can’t help it.
She’s looking back at me!
She probably thinks I’m a creep!

Five o’clock. Finally home.
I wonder if he’s home too.
He is. I see him.
I’ll just act like I don’t see him.
I’ll just keep folding towels
And watch some Dr. Phil.
I wonder if we’ll ever meet.
There is only one street
Keeping us apart.
Does he think I’m pretty?
I want him to find my door.
I don’t mind it.
He thinks I don’t know.
But I can feel those brown
Eyes on me.
Oh! I can see them now.
He seems so frightened
that I noticed him.
Don’t be afraid…
Come talk to me.

A touch lighter than that of a robin’s egg,
Covered by beautifully long lashes as she yawns and closes her eyes.
One quick glance her way, and her personality is shone through them.
Ones like hers run in the family-
Incredible blue eyes.
