patience in public

June 18, 2013

there is someone
sitting in my favourite seat
in my favourite place.

she is reading a big, thick book.
all her plates and cups and glasses
are cleared away.
there is not even a lingering coffee for her
to toy with.

there are only pages to go
until she finishes her
very thick book.

she pays no attention to anything,
she is engrossed in reading.

finally she closes the book,
and she seems to sigh,
then turns it over,
opens it,
and starts at the beginning again.
