The Empty Lot

By Jeanpaul Mazlymian

A car sits in an empty lot

On a cool autumn night

Two people sit inside

Silently awaiting a sound

“I’ll drive you home,” he tells her

They drive for a while

On the lonely roads

With dim street lights

He stops at a house

In a quiet suburb

She steps out the car

Shivers from the cold

And walks along a path

To enter an unlit doorway
