unexpected beauty

To the fourseome gathered around the table speaking of church in whispers; to the barista outside smoking a cigarette to manage your stress and maintain the thin waisted girlish figure of youth; to the awkward couple in the corner–he with helmet and leather jacket, she with matching hawaiian pant and blouse set with bright yellow flowers against periwinkle background– to the man at the table by the door with tatoos on your withered arm and scribbling away on xeroxed paper beside the autobiographical novel: Born to Run, with your hungry eyes and seeming contradictory air,

to the starbucks at Hampden with her late night inhabitants both sleepy and caught up in reckless dreams:

thank you for reminding that life, though contradictory, is fraught with beauty in the most unlikely of places.
