Caffeine Inspiration

sitting in a cafe
trying to write a poem -
gaining inspiration from caffeine.

over the rim of her cup
a young lady with a ladder in her stocking
is trying not to look at me,
and I try not to look at her,
it is uncertain who tried not to look first.

our eyes meet briefly,
she smiles.
I return to my coffee
with its caffeine inspiration,

nothing comes of it today.
