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
