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


a woman voraciously reads
her newspaper

if only her mocha and biscotti

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

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
