Coffee Shop

Go on,

she’s sitting right there

reading Salinger or Vonnegut

(some paperback so worn

you can’t quite make it out)

Go on,

she’s for some reason

all alone

and there’s a chair across the table

waiting to be filled

Go on,

say something normal to her

She doesn’t want you

to be Superman,

she just wants you

to be a man.

Go on,

her Scarlett O’Hara mouth

is a lipstick epiphany

and you could be the one

to discover it

She’s only a few steps away

so just go on –

    I like it. But I always do.

  2. It’s funny how our self-perception is, more often than not, nothing like how we appear to others.
