To be green.

Did I actually pay for this?
Jammed in between
The old man snoring and the lady
With the baby,
All I can see are swaying bodies
Hiding the view.

I feel as gray as the rain on the windows.
But I guess I made my choice: it’s important
To be green!

He knew

He knew
That when the bell went,
It would start all over again.
They could be so
Mean.
He held his breath
Tightly.
"Here we go again!" he thought.

Too many choices

Too many choices.
The sound of hissing steam
Distracted him. How was he going to decide?
Dark, medium, Columbian, Chilean.
And what does skinny, lo-fat mean?

The line moved forward.

Facile

So what did that mean
When he said that it was not
Going to be so
Easy?

Since when is anything ever
Easy?

Conjugation

Are you present to me?
Are we past all that?
What does the future hold?

Is it conditional or
Am I subject to your agreement?
