THE GUN IN HIS HOLSTER

  1. The other night I served a police officer on duty.
    Uniform and all.
  2. His radio was on.
    I wondered what it was like to do something so normal while the static sang of wrongs.
  3. He joked about the fact he was buying donuts.
    We both laughed.
  4. I kept staring at the weapon in his holster...
    Sleek and black.
  5. ...and thinking how lucky I am that's the only place I've ever seen a gun.*
