Topic: Bar Room Couple
Just me writing about a local bar.. I like to to put my experience of every day real Kiwi life into words hope it works.
Bar Room Couple.
Boy and girl sitting at the bar.
She pulls out her phone.
Drowning out a quiet guitar playing at the bar.
Her voice travels across the room.
“Lets put our selfie on Facebook”.
A quick little snappy are they bored or are they happy.
Why do they need their face on cyberspace.
Are their minds in this space or another place.
Is multi tasking while talking to each other.
A new way of dating and mating.
Are new apps updating looking to grab more of their time.
Are they in love with each other.
Or are they looking for another.
Texting looking at their devices.
Nattering and chattering.
While taking little sips from flash cocktails.
On the other side of the bar beers in pints.
There is me and my mate talking lost in debate.
I look at the time.
I need to shoot through.
Got other things to do
The young couple catch my eye as I am preparing to say goodbye.
Raise their glasses high.
Wishing me good health
Enquiring of them. I ask,“ Are you having a good day”?
He says” yes” and with a big smile she shrieks “this day has been the best.”
“My boyfriend asked me to marry him and I said yes.”
I drain my uplifted glass in a salute.
Wish them God Bless and all the best.
