Good News

He opens the front door
foot snagging on the threshold
stumbling into the room

He’s clutching a letter
from somewhere
with news that
changes everything

She looks up from
her desk piled up
with bills
raising eyebrows
smiling slightly

He smiles back
waving the letter
taking a deep breath

She jumps up
chair scratching
the wood floor
takes his hands
into hers

They dance

Prompt: A scene in which two or more people
interact without speaking.
