Reality Check


Im greeted with a smile
and a “welcome back”

I check for my usual spot
and finding it available
I sit down

I no longer need to
order
and even remember
beer bringing
waitress’s name

I open the paper
Checks the news

As she passes by
I return her smile
and as she returns
I check her out

As you were
Move along
Nothing special

All is well
