On a train heading for a meeting in Downtown L.A.
In Café Car across from an attractive lady
with active phone facials to display
Too many humans view conversations with a poker face
Any emotions shut down, no hints of the cards in place
OMG’s in a steady stream
Issues with a plumbing broken seam?
Pipes with leaks a plague ever since Roman times
When will we nonplumbers view leaks through a ceiling as a crime
Too many of the bright
Go to college instead of making a seal tight
So much expression in her face moving air like a fork that tunes
So much energy--would like to meet her but we will be in L.A. too soon.
