Happy Hopper Days ('Chop Suey')

She looks so thin, and tired.
“Couldn’t sleep,” she says,
“I need to talk to you,”
She wouldn’t meet my eyes.

“I think there is another
Woman…please, I want
To say it now, before
I change my mind again.

He’s grown distant, quiet,
Something’s wrong,” she says,
“Please, tell me now, sis,
I need to know the truth.”

She’s so afraid to know,
And yet she won’t turn back.
We’re never coming back
To this cafe again.

This painting - 'Chop Suey' by Hopper - was one of last week's writing prompts from Margo Roby (Wordgathering.)

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
