In the next booth--right in my line of sight--
the conversation of the men turned
to cremation, burial plans, plots, tombstones and insurance
for all of the above 
and my chorizo and egg burrito
which is normally delicious laid untouched on the plate
Old men talking exit strategies--as if they're dealing stocks, antiques maybe, selling short...
I turned to the sports page
Where there is no news about minor league baseball teams
that I like to read
so I look at stories of the Lakers who are losing two playoff games in a row
Maybe they are getting old, too
