LEANING STICK:

There’s a cowboy telling jokes at the table next door,
A Pre-Raphaelite girl with a muscular boyfriend,
Plastic ivy cascading down the walls around the swimming pool,
Bus-boys cleaning tables,
Smiling at girls in rah-rah skirts,
Faking courtesy with a cartoon bow,
Checking them out,
Grinning
