The Elevator

With the shifting of the building

Given various weather scenarios,

I noticed this evening how the

Elevator button glowed red.


I waited then pressed the button.


It was warm, like the hood of the car of a cheating husband.


I pressed it again, but waited no longer

Looking over the railing for insensitive



There were none.


I listened and waited.

Finally, I pushed the elevator door,

Which moved inward and the

Elevator descended.


It rested on the ground floor,

Where it must have been called

By a person, who got bored or frustrated?


I pressed the button again and the

Elevator rose to the top floor.

I got in and made sure the

Door was shut.

I noticed the gap was snug,

And then it descended.
