(the waitress prompt)

Coffee grit wall of windows
“eyes” so last century, now
flat screen red-carpet Premiers
each window a stacked channel
kitchen light over kitchen lights
yellow bedroom constellations.

I’ve watched for years
a bank teller, school teacher
Summer barista in red apron
Winter kitchen windows in-
visible in Summer, midnight
lights flicker any time of year.

Can you see me?  Lights out
on my blank existence, my wall
weak tea bricks, windows as
nights smothered in clouds.
