I Design Skyscrapers In Seattle

"You look lonely."

I tried not to blush,
Considering my luck,
And your great pick up line.

"Come join my friends."

I listened to your story,
For less than three minutes.

I was curious how humans could be so different.

"Unions are big here. Not so much in Seattle."

They can work longer,
Build taller,
For about half the pay.

"So, San Francisco, huh?"

I walked back to the bar,
Motioning to my drink,
As I'd rather appear lonely,
Than talk to an asshole.
