Atmosphere 12 - Caffeine

Mood: Drained
Sound Waves: LIFE by YUI

Oil Smell (the small restaurant)

First thing I notice: the chairs and tables.
What I can yank back from yesterday
Is that the table top's pattern didn't
Look the same. (Or... maybe it was
Just the November chill getting into my nerves.)
I smell the sizzling oil of
Bubbling fast food, served warm
On sensational smelling salted
Ceramics. I can hear the crisp
Crunch of earth-tiled flooring and
Quick transactions to visitors
Old and new, all the same, all diverse.
The eyes try to drink the familiar 
Images in, but can't bring up any
Fonder memories, since the last time
They visited.
