lonely men sitting in a coffee shop reminded me of hopper's painting "night hawks"

a Hopper in the making
I photographed
three lonely men drinking coffee
in a coffee shop
how did I know they were lonely
they were straight out of an
Edward Hopper painting
like the people in “Nighthawks”
the light coming in the windows
reminded me of several of his paintings
of women looking out to bright light
that flowed in but brought no relief
three lonely men
where did they go when
they left the coffee shop
to a warm cozy cottage
or back to the streets for the night

As an Artist I have always admired the simplicity of Edward Hopper's paintings, "7am" is a particular favourite of mine. Bloody good poem!
