on JFK in Cambridge: twenty-five?
funny and smart and smiling and alive!
We didn't forget her when we paid our bill.
She let us linger while we chatted sipping
black coffee as we customarily do
after French onion soup and pizza for two.
O blest receiver of our lavish tipping!
Wit and glad banter, lots of scrumptious food!
Friday the 13th bringing the best of luck!
We’ll head home on the bus toward four o’clock
carrying books and thoughts of gratitude.
