five tissues at the phoenix airport

my computer on my lap
bag to my side and
coat on the other side

too lazy to pack up my shit and walk to the bathroom
to get

i kindly ask the middle aged
to watch over my belongings while
i make the small trip around the corner to the bathroom

" i have a kleanex you can use"

she hands me five

i turn around to face the trash can
blow my dry nose
and blood comes out
