Tuesday 12th April



Two-dog sidewalk, Motherwell window, Walk in silence,
avoiding contact, duration. The boys with the badges
arrive in pairs, under the watch of bug-eyed shades &
a Kung-fu bandana. Chilli-dips, free re-fills, grad-A honey.
Big boys in the back booths, ancient hippy basketball giants,
move slow, caffeine heavy, strawberry jello, eggs with everything.
Old man in an Iron Maiden t-shirt smiles at the waitress
in black & white.
More blue boys arrive. Pandas cascade, couples hold hands,
park heavy machines in sunlit parking lots.
Gratuity nation, 24/7
