Observations for Eight Minutes in the University Cafeteria

by G. Jack Urso

blinking light . . . cellular sight

                time arbitrarily finite

too many tables where i see

students sitting seeking solace

in each other’s company  

jung girl eats tuna from a can

i think that she

used to be a man

serious studious dude

young couple's romantic interlude 





a murmuring menagerie of sound 

four minutes in . . .

wheelchair willy

feeling a bit chilly

bald-headed biker sheik

lift my eyes, take a peak 


hall prowler

willowy beauty

captain jack and the asian guy

watch them all . . . walk on by 

thirty seconds left

or would that be

like two fifteens

just half-bereft
