it was a warm day full of filtered light…i have consumed five latte’s in last 2 hours..
I pay up and start to walk as to not be late for my appointment… but as
i pass by the best burger joint in town…a smile catches my attention and the smell of bbq entices me to open the door and walk in…
i say hello and order “the Lot” with a sides of fries
why are my hands shaking…face feels warm…he is on the other side…he starts to make conversation..i introduce myself and he returns the favour
I ask…are you from around here… he says he has just returned from Denmark after 10 yrs, its his first day at work then begins to tell me his lifestory as we exchange monies to complete the transaction.
..now his face is warm and his hand shakes as he reaches out to give me 35 cents…i can feel his breath and smell his sweat…
I consume “The lot”
I ask him for a pen, write my name & number down on the back of the napkin .. he smiles..
Call me Lawrence.
