The Depot

Energy of
hustle and bustle
buzzes from
one table
to the next
Baristas move
like lightning
creating magic
in a mug
Legs swing
and bounce
to rock ‘n’ roll

flowing from
speakers above
Chatter and laughter

drift among
clinking glasses
Crackling flames

of reds and yellows
tango in the fire-pit,
and when he sips,
mustache catches all
prompting my imagination
to a beige caterpillar
resting on his upper lip
My chai,
sweet perfection,
like this moment with him
at the corner shop
in downtown.

    1. The coffee and chai were good, but the whole experience was “more than coffee.” Thanks for popping in, Resa, and I’m glad you liked that caterpillar lip, too. 🙂 Take care 💞🥰☕️
