my face in the window
and the night

I can see you, (somewhere between Steppenwolf and Philip Marlowe) drinking unwanted coffee and gazing at your reflection in the rain-spattered window of an all-night diner; your face appearing and disappearing courtesy of an errant neon sign.
Ok! Ok! So you were drinking cocoa, wearing dressing gown and slippers and sitting in your kitchen when you wrote it - but look where it took me. Thank you.

Hi floots: That's me, a short Philip Marlowe. Although this is based on a particular moment, it's inspired, really, by lots of moments, some in diners, some in the kitchen. Good to hear from you, as always.
