Neutral Ground - Magpie Tales 220

New York Restaurant by Edward Hopper 1922
Visual Prompt by Mag: 220

She picked the place
knew they would be 
invisible
so often there
just once more.

She scheduled the time
knew it would be packed
ignored
among the others
who dined there often.

She wrote the script
what needed to be said
goodbye
and he could not
raise a fuss.

She had the cab
waiting just outside
departure
to new beginnings
the end of an old affair.

  3. I like how each verse opens with 'She', and focuses us on her intentions. A lovely idea of escape.

  4. She's a determined one, it seems.
