The Storyteller - One


Selecting, by far, the longest line
ignoring all others much shorter
Im unemployed, got plenty of time
to wait for my favorite checker
 
When ringing up my items, last visit
she greeted me like a friend, so warmly
In voice so exquisite with smile so sublime
today Im seen through a darker lens
one that sees right through me
before, her face created sunshine
countenance now flat, demeanor surly
 
Hello I say, she mumbles a response
she thinks Im vain because I bought croissants
nope, she saw that off-brand, looked at me funny
shes convinced, I know, that Im tight on money
damn, damn, damn Ive done something else wrong
my lifes just as bad as a sad Country song
 
Easily sensing my obvious distress
She says can you tell Im depressed?
then telling me shed been up all night
because her baby had colic
and her husbands alcoholic
