Week 3 LJ Idol: A Moment of Bliss

October 6, 2008 § 23 Comments

Ode to a Diner

Smoky hazy
Marvin Gaye
Floats by
Through the tinny
Un-distilled air.
Fans rage as glasses chink
And diners scrape plates
Absently pattering
Over the days events.
“Jumpin’ Jumpin'”
On the jukebox
Competes with
Twangy Country
Overhead
As Lazy Dog* lurks
Through yonder window.
Kitschy creatures
Crave audience
Behind the counter
As waiters waft by
Watchfully waiting
To grant your fill.
Hazy smoky
Try not to choke
On the atmosphere that is
Vale Rio.

*Lazy Dog was the name of the bar next door to the diner. Neither establishment exists today.
