1:25 in the Morning

the sweet smell of excess
and the opportunity to make
life changing (threatening) decisions
over a battle-scarred laminated table
Naugahyde leather sweats your ass
discontent hangs in the air
like cotton candy above us
calculated shallow discontent
with nothing to gain or lose
by staying safely cradled
in the booth in the restaurant
that faces out on to a once-proud highway
