Baby Charlie suddenly cries lying on-top of the blankets,
on the 4th floor inside the apartment & the window left half opened.
A street jogger listening to music partially hears Charlie crying.
A young lady dashes into the street holding a shopping bag,
a cabbie slams on his brakes, his fist on the horn.
The lady immediately drops her bag.
“Get out the way lady!” He yells.
On the 4th floor;
the neighbor beside Charlie is watching Judge Judy,
the neighbor closer to the elevator turns up the radio
to drown out his cries and all the other noise.
In the hallway a man carries out bags of trash.
Ding, the elevator door opens.
The lady from the street charges past the man with her bag,
turning the knob to the apartment door she races to Charlie,
embracing him she kisses his cheek; Charlie stops crying.
