A Poem by Jeannie Fry

Dreams of the girl behind the coffee counter

In the days before I know your name
I will imagine all sorts of evolving things

Before your first smile
I will picture you are lonely
I like these days best as they afford me the ultimate rescue

I will think you've been abandoned by the most elementary forms of love
At first, you struggled alone to achieve it, years later
you learned to live without

Before you have noticed me
I will get to know you by tantalizing degree
One sugar in your black coffee
Same T-shirt on the weekends

So in love with the glottalization of your "thanks"
