Dark Brown Suede Pumas

Dark Brown Suede Pumas

The effervescent funniness that permeates college
campus ladies and gentleman floats in coffee -stench
air. We all love star-torn loners wailing away on their
notepads. It’s a down vest Polar Fleece January night,
full of head-nods, poke-ins, note-taking. Up at the bar,
a white sweater stretches to accommodate her hands,
now behind her back, and pushing, full force, forward
and upward at the barista dude. “The book of General
Ignorance” blares from a chest-top. Umbrella-boy,
cautious, finds a quiet corner, as F-Bombs float at Gillian
from a newly-arrived admirer. Small Carolina students
filter in to the increasingly multi-cultural meeting room:
a concrete and sofa and card-table and schoolhouse-bench-
desk decorated box that outstrips most coffee houses for
ambiance. Ear phones become a secondary defense (again
the laptops are the number one wall) as the glance comes
back strong from Puma-girl. Peruvian art goes mostly
unnoticed, but proximity leads to new friendships today.
