Fifty Odd Words No. 50

Two men used the alley as a shelter from the sun.
"You'd think with all this shade, the city would be cooler." The first said.
Their bodies hung low in the muted light: drab without colour.
The second thumped his foot against the dumpster. "Instead the tarmac soaks it right up. "

I really like these short pieces. My mind takes me anywhere and the story starts to fill in. Like who these two men are? Where there are and what they are doing there? What city is is? The time of year? Why are they hiding in the shade?

It's endless. Keep doing your thing!
