her, at work

she turned the corner, walking quickly,
bumped into me, stopped, stared,
smiled, and moved on;
not uncommon at the workplace.

two days later, she emailed me
with a question to which she already
knew the answer; i kindly replied with
a smiley face emoji.

three days after the email…

actually, instead, let’s fast forward
six months
to the first of 14 abortions;
what can i say; i’m fertile.
