Your Story

Composed 7/23/14
Description: n/a

10:00
I sit thinking about
6:00
The people behind the counter
The boy who brings us burgers
no pickles, no onions
and taco salad
chicken, extra jalapeños
and a traditional smile
and a
I saw you yesterday
At the store
Didn’t say hello

The boy who blends into wallpaper
but hit me like a door

Seems kind
A little funny
“I was buying pants”
He laughed at my dry, offhand remarks
And I was struck, wondered
what he did in his spare time
Gamer? Sport guy?
What does he want out of life?
College plans? Entrepreneur?
Like me, looking for his way?

Makes me wonder what would happen if I said
Hey, what’s your story, kid?
