Just some of the many things I see while passing time in the cafe.


BY THE BANNISTER

a woman voraciously reads
her newspaper

if only her mocha and biscotti
could last as long

but they will be gone
well before the last page

on the other side
a bald head leans back

setting like a crewcut sun
slipping comfortably below

a wooden horizon

I like the last three lines the best, where the imagery really comes alive. And "crewcut sun"...? How brilliant is that? I like the rest too, but it's got a different flavor-- general, not specific, but it sets a great atmosphere. --Charlie

nice imagery and poem
Reviewed by David Hightower 2/18/2008
Daniel - Enjoyed the imagery you used in this poem, as in all your poems. To me it's like reading a story and pondering a painting at the same time. A world present in a diner. - David

This gives me Barnes & Noble memories, lol, as I worked there for 12 years! A photo of a moment in words, nice work.

I love the way you write - you take us there with clever, memorable lines that I wish I'd thought of, dangit! LOL Well done, Daniel, indeed.

So hows the food in that little cafe
