She's ready for business
At her corner table, alone,
Cappucino and laptop
Beside cellular phone.

He sits just a table away.
His fingers nervously tap,
He's dealing via his cell phone,
Papers are strewn on his lap.

I can't be certain of course,
But it's a pretty good hunch,
Given the fact that it's noon,
They've stopped in here for lunch.

Lunch--perhaps you remember,
At lunch how your restive feet
Would stir, so eager to rush,
Headlong, into the street.

How the street charmed and whispered,
"Today you may find your chance
For undreamed of adventure
Or unexpected romance.

Ah, but that was another life.
Who knows, maybe their use of time
Beats my lunch hour fantasies
That never made me a dime.

I opt for the old fashioned version of lunch myself! Money ain't everything! Delightful, as always, Dom!
