Today MZ asked us to write about a place where we felt perfectly safe, and to do so in 53 words or less. I've used 52.

a woman I had just met
took me across the city
to a room full of strangers—
she said, “This is Kay,”
and they all said, “Hi, Kay, welcome!”
nobody asked questions
or looked inquisitive
they just said, “Hi, Kay, welcome.”
I’ve been there ever since
and I say, “Hi there, welcome.”
in memory of my friend Eroca, who died last year,
but who always made me welcome.
