TWO WOMEN IN A CAFÉ TALKING by Michael H. Brownstein

TWO WOMEN IN A CAFÉ TALKING
Two women
in a cafe
talking honestly.
"...like an attempt 
to murder," one said.
The sun lifted its mane
behind the clouds.
"More like an attempt
at suicide,"
replied the second,
and when she laughed,
her front tooth wiggled.
A soft drizzle rainbowed
down the window.
"...an attempt at love,"
answered the first
and a blue river
opened a path
within the clouds.
"Yes, that's it.
An attempt at love."
