Picture

I sat at a coffee-shop

I saw an unhappy child
Cupcake creamy on dirty floor

Tonsils shaking the baby-chair

 

Opposite her a mummy-model
With caked-on make-up

Snapped a loud selfie

Eye-lashes pleasantly fake

 

And some twenty feet away

 

The father
A scrawny tall man

Elbow perched on high counter
One foot crossed over the other leg

Toes pressed
Chatted to the girlish aide

 

With bright green hair and pierced tongue
Busy gum-chewing mouth            ’til

She said she was gay
