she doesn't have to pay for them now

 

When she was a dancer

Her bones were made of rubber bands

He made double espressos and black and white films

 

On grey afternoons she watched him

from behind her

white ceramic mug

Lasar Segall. Coffee Tree and Head (Cabeça e cafezal). (1930)

  1. Thanks! I wrote it as my husband was making me an espresso in the kitchen. It’s actually how our relationship started (almost 18 years ago when I was a teenage dancer and he was a college student working in a coffee house).
