This Sky

This sky
reminds me of a booth in an old-fashioned diner.
A waitress in a blue uniform
wipes the table with a miraculously clean white cloth.
And down here, we dine on our lives,
eating to the tunes we have chosen
from the tabletop jukebox. Tonight it plays
The Great Pretender
by The Platters
