Thursdays at the expensive cafe


The men are served hot chocolate 

In a wide cup without a handle


They are offered a variety of baked goods

Inevitably choosing the chocolate chip cookie


The servers are thin, traditionally attractive 

Female college students


Evoking feelings of melancholia and desire 

while the gentleman at the register demands 15 dollars


Their shock at this price is so intermingled with their loneliness

That a strong feeling of vertigo overcomes them


They will happily separate themselves from their dollars 

To extricate themselves from their emotional stupors


After a week of digital solitude

They’ll return the following Thursday

◄ The Perfect Death

School’s for girls ►

OMG This is brill.

Great use of non-rhyme!

Is that even a word?

I'll have a cup of that.

Nice work
