The Vestibule

His cigarette was sweet,

as the smoke weaved over the rusted

wrought iron fence and slid through

the cracks between the double glass doors,

while I waited for a delivery truck.

The leaves curled over themselves

curling over the welcome mat,

exactly the way it smelled to drink

hot beer in the square in Krakow,

but on a Saturday afternoon in Queens.
