People Watching

Sitting nursing a paper cup of coffee, in a supermarket café, near the checkout lanes.

Watching the world go by.

A youngster in a cart full of purchases, with a radiant smile at eye contact.

A woman laboring to carry the excessive weight of  extreme obesity.

Young people straight and strong, and an oldster leaning on a cart for support.

He leads, she follows; each pilots a mobile shopping cart, baskets full.

Many more fat than fit.

But every one a person of interest in his own way.   Looking happy or grim, pleased or tense, alone or a couple, or a group, all together at this moment.

Struggling to climb up onto the high stool at the raised table in the fast-food café at the supermarket.
