Listening to jazz guitar, sipping coffee, enjoying the music and people watching.
Dad is sitting at the table
faded orange ballcap
a red beaded necklace around his thick neck
a pair of kids sunglasses hooked onto the front of
his army green t-shirt.
He's a big guy,
towers over everyone when he stands
to get his daughter a straw for her milk.
She's wearing a navy dress with a white bow
and a red white and blue crown on her head,
a rainbow face painted on her cheek.
He gets up again to get glasses of water for the kids and grandpa.
Big brother has a spider on his cheek
and a red beaded necklace on his neck,
He also has Dad's nose and eyes.
Mom and Grandma are at the counter ordering.
Dad goes to check on them,
returns to the table with more glasses of water.
A gentle giant
An ordinary life.
