A Temporary Lapse of Judgement

She grips her hands in her lap

knuckles turning white

iced tea drips

a small cold rivulet

down the side of her face

paints

the wall beside her

on the table a shard of ice

melts among broken glass

the restaurant

still quiet

except for angry footsteps

and then

with the door still swinging

closed

life resumes

for everyone else
