Flip Flops

Sitting in the coffee shop
amongst the hum of machines
chatter of patrons
entering my silent zone
unplugging from the world
tuning out noise
homing in on observations
I notice him
sitting at the table
back to me
I peer down and see them
flip flops flipping and flopping
dancing with excitement
his fingers tap away at the keyboard
hunched over
in his zone
feet jumping flipping and flopping
keeping rhythm with the keys
next great novel right there
no wonder he has flip flops on
amid winter
his feet get good and warmed up
keeping time with the chapters
