minimal conversation
atheistic by arrangement
                              two cups
of coffee
               tables chairs
and faces waving
at luxuriant courtyard
flax palms maidenhair ferns
noting an epiphyte
                      from biology
he cannot explain
the thrill and the lift
of this
being simple
so archaic
               nor the ache
at thinking a late
               he likes this
yet unsure
wants to 'stick around'
and when they reach
                      her car
the poor boy's pride
twists inside
wanting so much
being so poor
                      at least
to touch as the ache tells
him to run for the one
he just left
                  and misses
