His wife reclined on the loveseat, with her book and her bad leg propped up. “I don’t even know how you’d know that. You haven’t even spoken to the man.”
“He’s dark skinned. Well, darker.”
“It’s dark outside.”
“I just know these things, okay?” He said testily.

Joseph's desire to keep the neighborhood in proper order forces him to see his place on the universe's pecking order.
As of April 2018, Neighbor has been selected to be part of Z Publishing's America's Emerging Writers Anthology, for New York.
