Poem for the Man at the Sun Cafe

Yep, that dude
recited a poem
to us
for
like twenty hours

(or maybe three minutes)
while all we really wanted was
to eat
root beer float,

but it was
across the room…

so close,
Yet
so out of reach.

He was a stranger to us.
A strange stranger.
Determined to recite poetry
To unwitting strangers

From a table
At the Sun cafe.
