Blank notebook Sunday mornings.
Put pen to paper.
Friday evening trips to Applebees,
Even if we still can't
Figure our how much
To tip the twenty-something year old waitress
Sam refers to as ma'am.
Once it rained
Like having a lake turned upside down
Over your head.
On the other side of the window
A shopping cart rolls down the sidewalk
Pushed by phantom laughter.
Scream profanities in the parking lot
Of 'Toys "R" Us.'
Five crazy teenagers.
