Storyboard Text

  • As I walked toward her house, the one whose porch light burned yellow Night and day, in any weather. A dog barked at me, until She came out pulling At her gloves, face bright With rouge. 
  • I smiled, Touched her shoulder, and led Her down the street, across A used car lot and a line Of newly planted trees, Until we were breathing Before a drugstore.  
  • 
  • And asked what she wanted - Light in her eyes, a smile Starting at the corners Of her mouth. I fingered A nickle in my pocket, And when she lifted a chocolate That cost a dime, I didn't say anything. 
  • Outside, A few cars hissing past, Fog hanging like old Coats between the trees. 
  • I took my girl's hand In mine for two blocks, Then released it to let Her unwrap the chocolate.
  • I peeled my orange That was so bright against The gray of December That, from some distance, Someone might have thought I was making a fire in my hands.
