People look different in here
over in juices
a blonde reading labels

her legs a cinnamon tan
curved calves and painted toes
her kinetic 5-year-old daughter

with carrot curls and freckles
pulling mom to sugar free candy
and scouting organic chips.

That guy with corded legs
flat abs and low body fat
studies a head of romaine

as if reading the leaves
for pork belly futures
or the price of soy in Brazil.
