Airport Blues

Looking around the room, a sea of faces surrounds me. Blank stares, idle glances, the screaming pleas of children....

I watch the couple across from me, playing cards to avoid conversation. I wonder how long it has been since they looked in each others' eyes. Since they touched. Made love?

The American man, with the wedding ring, calling home and speaking gently to his wife. Reassuring her while he rests his eyes on the girl beside me. This woman is oblivious, the one on the phone, and she speaks so freely - of roommates and dinners, birthdays and razors, comedy clubs and suicides, so closely intertwined.

I consider the possiblity that this may be all there is. This room. These people. Repeated 'till infinity.

And where are you?

Liefs Coffee

I am probably one of the Legions Of The Lost, Coffee. A simple man trying to do his best in the limited time allotted to him. I used to be angry at those sort of people. But now I understand their isolation
