at the 24-hour

at the 24-hour
diner, there are
there is no one
to look at, no
bonds to build
or break, and
the waiter has
stepped away
for a smoke.
it’s just you
and your prime
burger, with all
the trimmings, a
basket of sweet
potato waffle
fries, and – while
you’re alone –
that elusive
malted milkshake
