The man with his leg in a cast and do-it-yourself crutches is sorry
He says so to the older couple Waiting for him to pass through the entrance of a coffee shop
His crutches in one hand, his other hand holding the door as he hops through
It’s blatant that the couple is fucked up and they’ll never realize
Annoyingly trailing through the doors of a coffee shop
For a morning shot of espresso and dull conversation
The man with his leg in a cast and do-it-yourself crutches is sorry
He says so to the older couple
Half accepting his apology
