“Waiting at Bloomingdale’s” – H. Brad Halverson

They spoon, some delicate,
others with an intensity.

An outburst of “hi”s,
enthusiasm conveyed
with rapidly
ascending pitch.

They prance around
in their work-out leggings,
every shade of hair,
almost consistent with the
past-the-shoulder length.

The poise with which
they carry the plastic
containers of frozen yogurt –

it almost seems as law –
the length of their hair,
their pants so formly clinging.
