Bastards of Young

After the show
we spill out of stickered cars
and into the mauve vinyl booths
Denny’s is the only place we’re welcome

cards slam against the speckled pink table
the corners crinkled   :   colliding with each other
we always take Spit too seriously
waitresses refill our coffee cups
 
Creamer Jenga? Sharon stacks
the containers   :   I high five Dave as he walks by
Denny’s is the only place we’re welcome

my pinky knocks into the tower
Non-dairy creamers cascade
across the table
waitresses refill our coffee cups
roll across the restaurant
                                   Nice Job, Dave shouts
throws one back at me

friends
play musical booths
we shout    :   flirt    :    laugh

Denny’s is the only place we’re welcome
waitresses always refill our coffee cups.
