Tuesdays at Zolo's

She is always there, like an old couch that
embraces you as soon as you settle in, on your
own schedule, your own rhythm, your own way.
it may sound like an insult to be compared with a couch
but it is the highest compliment, to offer
a stranger or a friend a place to sit comfortably,
to let them be fully themselves without
demanding stimulating conversation, good looks
or the right level of attention,
yawning is an appreciated response as you settle
into a glass of wine and shrimp tamales
like you always do.
