So Sorry

Here we sit

anxious

irritated

waiting

getting angry

where IS that waitress

no drinks

no menu

WHAT is this world

coming to

silverware maybe

if you please

oh wait

oh…

what?

sorry dear

honest mistake

I was on the menu

<<< for AllPoetry contest.  prompt was I was on the menu.  It struck me funny this morning>>>

The Unseen

I

haunt

the quiet

I

the darkness

the shadows

the unseen

and

the unseeable

I am here

I can see you

but

no one

bothers to see me

and because

I am the darkness

I

am

blinded

by the sun

Turn away

do not look

at me

my way

you will not see

because

like the night

I am

the unseen
