The Absinthe Drinker

The Absinthe Drinker
Victor Oliva, "The Absinthe Drinker"

iCafe

Black pony tail, black jeans, black t-shirt super tight. Rimless little glasses, the hipster intellectual. Lipstick and perfect brown skin. Serving coffee at the iCafe.

Chess couple, European, drinking coffee, laughing faces close to their board. She rubs his shin with the toe of her sneaker. Happy on their date, Sunday afternoon in the city.

Heavy man with uncut long hair, green windbreaker, thick rimless glasses. Computer, coffee, depression. Sexless behind double chin. Alone in the corner in a roomful of couples.

Men with iPads watching movies. Boys with smartphones, watching movies. The author with his MacBook, watching people, downloading movies, running away from home.
