two baristas
deconstruct their boyfriends
all night rain

    Enjoyed the humor and that these could be either female or male baristas deconstructing their boyfriends through the all night rain.

    The last line raises the verse, and wonderfully makes me ponder why you are there all night.

    the long white apron
    of a barman–
    the day menu unscrews

    Sunday crowds –
    deep inside the kitchen
    one clean white apron

    I love the atmosphere in this. It really reminds me of my student waitressing job – we loved to see bad weather because it meant we could huddle round the old heater at the back of the restaurant and gossip all afternoon.

    Thanks, Roberta! Things are going fairly well here, except we all have spring fever. It occurs top me that you all don't know that we have an 8 1/2-year-old. I'll have to send you a photo soon.
