I Don’t Want To

From Writing Notebook 2021, published in 2022.

I Don’t Want To

I pull into the parking lot
I put the car in the space
I walk across the asphalt
I yank at the door handle
Too hard
It flies open and bounces back with
a whoosh that sucks me into the lobby
I shiver. It’s the air conditioning
I say to myself, but it’s not.
