The Muffin Man

I watched a young man walk
slowly down the steepened stairs
a stunning woman
slender with hair
which took up more
than anyone should be allowed

through the crowd
I thought the man was holding her hand
but he was really just holding
a muffin.

Maybe that's a better relationship anyway.
