making the best

Waiting for a server

& the stick thing gay guy on the right

has more tattoos hands arms neck

than many bikers I know

he serves with a smile light conversation

making the best of his your day

but the girl

the girl on the left checkout

is as solemn as yesterdays cat

all whisker alert & serious

finely painted deep crimson lips

with no smile conversation

which might crack that perfect painted pout

& as I must

I do my best to get her to talk say something

part those plumped primped pillows

but all I get are head nods shakes

one suspects

she is not here for long

she feels destined for greater things
