Quietude

Unobtrusively
sipping nuances
beading off
His frosty glass
Of whiskey
I subtly gave
Sideway glances
Vainly trying
To read his life’s
Bodywork
defying
His closed
“Keep off”
face
silently
Telling
~
Seemingly
Fully
At peace
With
Himself
He had
scant
Use
for
frivolous
‘Time pass’
Chitchats
~
His
rough
Hand
continued
Out reaching
Peanuts
One
at a time
put out
By the bartender
At his behest
That he
daintily
jawed
With
A mouth
Loosely
Shut
