timing

he came racing down the hall
as i rounded the corner
about the time each of us
would have collided
he slipped through a door
and into a room

the door was still ajar
as i passed
on to the elevator lobby

surprisingly the contraption opened
right up for me
i clamored aboard
luggage in tow
done with my hotel stint

the door was almost shut
when it sprung back to life
opening like an oyster
about to ingest the perfect grain of sand

the fellow from the hall/door ajar episode
stepped aboard
impeccable timing chimed i

yeah, i feel like i just used up all my luck for the day replied he

5 hrs later i made it home safe
i hope the rest of his day
was as kind to him
