In a Restaurant

November 30, 1993|By Virginia Carol Lewis Jones

He laughs.

She smiles.

All is cozy

In this sub shop.

The world outside

Cannot be heard.

The cars

Go down

The Street.

''What''

the waitress

Says to the other

And the other goes

''What''

And is it nothing

To say to her.

He looks at her food

She looks in his eyes.

''Aren't you bushed?''

She smiles

And says nothing more

Than No.

''Nobody does it''

The cook says.

And nothing more

Is said

While the couple eat

in Highlandtown

Where the cars

Pass in a noiseless air.
