The Parking Lot

by Arris Leighton

She approaches each car in the parking lot with her perfected, practiced pout and her never-ending story. "Can you give me some money for groceries because my children are sick and hungry, por favor?" Here she comes my way and I make eye contact - shit! She's in my face now with her line and her pout and her hand out. I give her a ten. Bitch.
