I Sit Near the Window by James Babbs

I sit near the window
watching the cars moving
in and out of the drive-thru
while Mellencamp sings
about a cherry bomb and
I look for another poem
between bites of food
but I don’t find it in
any of the faces around me
I don’t see it
hidden among the trees
out there past the pavement
Mellencamp fades and Bob Seger
rises up to take his place
and I finish the rest of my burger
along with the last french fry
before heading to the parking lot
walking out to my car
and the bright October sun
falls warm across my face
