Table Service

Her smile is legend.

She will get your coffee
just the way you like it.

Go back for sugar -
not regular, the raw kind,

or maybe coffee crystals
would be nice?

She will take your order,
make your order,

change your order
when you change your mind.

Her smile remains the same.

Your food arrives, drinks arrive,
anything else you want -

conversation, tact, discretion,
strokes your hackles down.

Do your ears tingle to the tune
of what you want to hear?

Underneath the servile care
she's always aware of the mean bone

that will complain about her service,
turn on her at the first slip

in the curve of her lips.

I absolutely love this sort of write, the perspective is right on the money, the tone is light with boundless layers of undercurrent, really complex and interesting piece my friend

you nailed it
