in the library
backroom on
a fiberboard
folding table sits
a styrofoam drink cup
a twenty ouncer
with a stamped image
of a blue sun
overlooking light
blue mountains
which lead to a
wavy blue ocean
with a white
seagull flying
over water and
toward the top
in red marker
are the initials
DC and around
the lip is a
clear plastic
cover that has
a straw hole
and a red striped
white straw
stuck into it and
on the peak
of that straw
is pink lipstick
mottled about
the outside of
the plastic and
the inside too
