The Apartment Building

A young woman stands on a first floor balcony.
Children laugh loudly in the street.
A couple kisses silently in a doorway.

She is in a kitchen on the second floor.
Children laugh loudly in the street.
A couple kisses silently in a doorway.
A baby cries.

Now she climbs the stairs between the third and fourth floors.
A couple kisses silently in a doorway.
A baby cries.
The couple argues next door.

She tiptoes down the fifth floor hallway.
A baby cries.
The couple argues below.
Pots and pans crash.

She watches the city from the roof.
Boxes get loaded into a van.
A pharmacist’s truck pulls up.
A gray hair is carried away in the breeze.
