SUCKING THE OXYGEN OUT OF THE ROOM

SUCKING THE OXYGEN OUT OF THE ROOM

 

lunch with my old shark kicking buddy

raining hard enough to bounce

god nothing but silence and forty mile stares

and you think of all those times

when your very presence

sucked the oxygen out of the room

and the  beauteous coffee server yawned

and you belch and release those toxic gasses

on the unsuspecting masses

unhappiness the evil twin of envy

and a secret smile from the resident

red haired beauty

as a wee sparrow of a woman fidgets

too impatient to wait

the tall red haired one

spots her favorite table

and clip clumps over

to take charge

just as I run out of words
