Concrete

Concrete

The seat—if one can call it that—is made of concrete. It is hard and off white. Cockroaches—one or two or three—walk by the steps. They stop by and go on. Later they come back. The cockroaches are big, about the size of a silver dollar. Sitting on the concrete there makes the body ache. People often walk up the steps. More often than not, these are tourists; the wooden doors of the building are of interest to them. Sometimes the tourists look down at the people stretched out by the doors. There are more men than there are women. Because the early morning is windy, there are blankets on the people sleeping by the doors. Passers-by look up and then they look down.
