Woman pulls up in an older BMW coupe
Her dark hair, mottled grey, neatly in place
Grabs her canvas shopping bag, heads for the store

Just minutes later in the coffee shop
She arrives for a cup
Takes it to go, sits outside
In the late afternoon sun
Facing the parking lot road

Clean blue jeans, that dressed casual look
She drinks rather quickly
Looks about in different directions
Keeps looking as she throws her cup away

No longer shopping
Instead, crosses the mall road
Waits, then paces
Watching the road, oncoming cars

Soon a black sedan pulls up, a man driving
She quickly opens the door
Climbs into the passenger seat
Gives him a smile
They drive away.
