She told herself that he wasn't really a bad person, he was just a pest, he was sticky, there was something misplaced in his demeanor- his smile, that kept him from fading clean from people when they wanted to be in the clear. But ever since she could remember, he was all that mattered and his smoky kiss haunted her lips. He often snuck into her head even when she closed her eyes or as she thoughtfully took a drag from her cigarette, turning all her actions into seductive calculations. He crept into her dreams, never asked, never invited. Deep down inside of her she knew he was bad news, yes, he was total flop and floozie but she couldn't help it. Everyone told her “You oughta have more sense to take chances with a stranger like this.” “Funny” she replied, “practically all the people I know were strangers when I met them.” [Margaret Johnson]
