caught you almost out loud (café artist)

I am the painter
I will dash you down
in a sketch

in blue

scrawled upon a page

sitting with
a strong
flat white

talking
to a friend
I will draw
your streaking hair
crow wrinkles at your eyes

sickle moons
creasing your mouth

serious talk
serious look
serious
eyes
a little sunken
a little orbit-
outlined

with cake
a spoon

the fingers of one hand
extended
to cup your chin
as you chew your way
through a little piece
of hummingbird

there

there you are

I caught you
in a sideways look
that reveals
you surprised
you amused

then you
almost laughing
right out loud
