Patrons spill over sidewalks
as alleys claim the night
with easy living bravado.
A chatter of chairs cluster
each table, cling to conversations
with six legged expectancy.

A swish of linen, a plain canvas
to paint the evening memories
captured in every irregular stain.
Claim the right to spoil into streets
where walls hold authority
and the air collects secrets.

Waiters swoop and glide
with the silence of swallows.
A dance orchestrated
to the quick and easy sounds.
The rise and ebb in the flow
of countless words caught
in snippets of attachment
as silver chinks on china.

A universe moulded
in the cusp of candle light
with its soft glow and eager eyes
flickering secret signals.
A touch of hands, the flutter
of lashes with the coy smile.
Creating layers beyond
the rushed scrape of chairs.

And in the empty hours
as the street sweeper
swirls its brushes and the wind
is only a whisper, sharp angled
buildings crammed shoulder
to shoulder share secrets.
