The Doorman

“I wrap my arms around my shoulders and rub. It is colder than a dead pre-school teacher’s cunt out here. I have been told to stand regally in front of the door, to respect the stature and tradition of the position, but I am not wearing a tall fuzzy hat and this ain’t London luv. I pace back and forth watching the cars breeze by; each one stirs the frosty wind into some further, darker, perversion of itself. It is damn cold.”
