one day I was just thinking about all the things i see when i sit around in coffeehouses, or waiting rooms and what not and wrote about it.
the commas are to make it more dramatic and represent pauses.
the music i was listening to kinda changed the way i wrote as well.

Cafe Girl

She walks in so gracefully,
make-up smeared,
lips perfectly painted.
Her expensive clothes dripping dry,
looking weak against the floresent light,
washing out the look on her face.

The man sitting at the table by the door,
examines her with more than eyes.
Willing to buy her time, and her body.
But she's not that type of girl.
And he knows it, but won't care.

The guy waiting in line,
drowning out the silence with music in his ears.
Intimidated by all she can present,
daring the whites behind his lips,
and the words in his throat,
for her.
But she doesn't care, because he doesn't care.

The girl working behind the counter,
disgusted with envy,
Standing with pride, knowing they're nothing of the same.
Nothing the same, all covered in shame.

And all along I sit here,
writing lines of what people say,
with no sound, no movement.
And all along nobody realizes that there's more to coffeeshop poems.

  i work in a coffeeshop.
i love inventing stories about customers.
i like the way you cause the customers to interact without talking... thats kinda cool
and it really is like that... the way our lives intermingle by accident.

and you know... its to the point that some customers smile at me and i wonder whether i know them from somewhere other than work... i guess its coz theyre regulars but not regular enough to know... you know?

i have to say though that my absolute pet peeve is the second guy... the one with the headphones/music playing. i am so close to refusing to serve people who cant take their headphones off long enough to ask for a coffee or whatever... its the height of rudeness if you ask me.

rant over.
nice piece
