This week’s prompt ‘top and light’ from Ronovan gave me an opportunity to try different story lines and I settled for these two eventually.
She knows he’s at home.
Light streams out of his apartment window
that’s on the top floor
Looking up as she dials

who’s the other topless lady?
I crawled to the top
of the dark, dingy and scary pit
into the brightest of lights.
