Coffee?


Starbucks
is like the American Embassy
here
in this new place.
They seem to flock,
gather and huddle
here
together, both to work and
to talk.
Not to play.
Clearly it is about
safety in
numbers,
with the ‘safest’
seeming those here for
reasons
military, about which
i smile, then laugh
alone in the corner,
causing discomfort amongst
the ranks, for
there is no safety,
not here, nor anywhere
else.
It takes most
a lifetime to
discover this;
for some
it takes three,
but mostly,
to many,
it seems
never to occur,
nor ever will it,
when the topic
remains
short
tall
decaff
grande
venti
non-fa…
ooooooooh….fuck off!!!
