Hookups

Pretty lady with husky voice, tight black Levi's, two shirt buttons open. College girl in gray sweater, shy, maybe a little nervous. Talk of horses back home.

Bicycle boy, rolled up blue Levi's, torn t-shirt, shades on a hemp rope around his neck. Twentyish girl with tan tennies, book bag, shades on head. Leaning closely over their table, hand gestures, talking enthusiastically.

Hookups at the coffee bar.

William H. Johnson, "Cafe" (1939-40)
