"24 Words Spoken On A Park Bench". by Rebecca Agauas

We sat on the park bench together, on opposites ends, in silence.

The birds swirled around our heads and played tag.

Flowers danced in the breeze and showed off their beauty.

Kids played in the dirt.

Dogs chased their tails around and around.

Kites soared higher than I could ever get them to go.

We only spoke to each other once.

It was simple and to the point, never over complicating the situation.

After 24 words were spoken, we got up from the bench and parted ways, never to be seen or

heard from again.
