A Window Seat at the Café
Of course I can, he’s asking if I can
eat this entire thing, a bun stuffed full
of stiff whipped cream.
He sips his coffee,
always black, always hot,
and thinks about something
that he says is nothing, when I ask.
We fall silent. He watches shoppers
pass the window. I watch a fly
on the window ledge. It’s buzzing.
On its back.
I glance up and say, Have you
noticed that flies always die
with their legs straight up?
