Mary, Mother of

Jane, who works in the coffee shop -
rough part of town. Her hair is dyed
for the sake of it, blows red flames
in the wind. Her skirts are too tight
she just doesn't care, what does it matter
in the end? She blows kisses into cups
just before serving, doesn't matter
if he's one of the regulars. It's due to
Mary never kissing her as a kid. Now
all Jane ever wants to do is kiss.
"All good things come to those who wait"
Mary always said. Just one more cup
even if he lies to her. God didn't
give her those big lips for nothin'.
