BLURB

Cecilia passes by his shop every day, at exactly 1:15pm. He knows her name, and how she prefers to carry her groceries in her left hand, and how utterly and completely dissatisfied she is by the life she has chosen. Her husband accompanies her to the market every Sunday, to keep up the appearance of faithfulness. On those days, he notices that Cecilia carries her groceries in her right hand, to avoid touching the man she sleeps beside each night. On this Tuesday, at 1:15pm, she turns her head ever so slightly, and sees him watching her from behind the shop’s counter. He detects the slightest of flashes in her green eyes, but dismisses it as a reflection of the shattered blink of the “open” sign he turns on each morning. He moves forward through the minutes until he’ll see her pass by again by dusting the shelves, organizing receipts, doing anything to keep from allowing the thought of her white knuckles on the bag strap from his entering his mind. 1:37pm. She opens the door. He opens her mouth. They open everything they were always supposed to keep closed. [Kathleen McCampbell]
