She sits in her parlour,
waiting for suitors
to buy her a burger

Annie’s is a fun, family friendly place at the U of M Minneapolis campus.  And yes, her burgers are great.

      I sit in a cold metal chair

                     next to a stranger

                                      at a gathering in a

                                                              familiar place     waiting      to be         inspired.

15 Minute Parking

15 Minute Parking

Her warm breath is violent,
forcing fall colors to loose the fight.

They crackle under a
Mother and Child lost in schedules.

A busy Man who talks to his hand,
crunch, crackle, crunch.

A Teen with her life on her shoulder,
crunch, crackle, crunch.

A roar in the clouds passes
through and fades away to exotic places.

The soothing rhythm of words,
a reminder of another kind of travel.

Her breath tickles my skin and she whispers,
“Please, stay a little longer.”

But I have zero minutes left.
