A Conversation


Girl A sits in the diner with her friend Girl B.


They sit on opposite sides in a booth, both of them with their phones out.


Hey, Girl A says.                                                                                                                Hey, says Girl B.


When the waitress drops off the silverware, Girl A unwraps her cutlery and proceeds to slice into her chicken fried steak. Full of gristle and overdone, it fails to do the job.


What I wouldn’t give for a sharper knife, Girl A says.


                               Me too, says Girl B, pulling her sleeves up to conceal her wrists.
