Her with a thick red coat.
You with a blue Cookie Monster jumper.
Her with a hot cross bun latte
and a slice of cherry Bakewell tart.
You with a miniature Tupperware pot
of sweetcorn and cucumber.
Her with not all of her teeth.
You with not all of your teeth.
Her with wrinkled skin and eye fireworks.
You on one side of the cafe.
Her on the other side of the cafe,
Her shooting a finger pistol.
