this is the lunch counter
anyone can sit at.
buy a girl a soda?
They'll bring one glass, two straws.
Tell me, Lonesome,
why aren't you in the bar? Do the stools there
pitch and yaw?
Too bad, swabbie,
about the girl you left behind.
Do ya miss her? Do I remind you of?
set your sea bag down. Noah knew
--bet you do, too--
that a pigeon is still a dove.
