Night People

Met a woman tonight
she asked for money to fix her broken starter
asked for help
from the bottom of my heart
for her three
no four
(one severely hampered by a wheelchair)
and when I turned her down
(as the stone I’ve weathered into.)
she stepped across the street
hopped in her car
turned the key
and sped off.
