the coffee shop overfilling and ringing

with mirth and memorable conversation,

floating and finding ownership in the

crooks and crannies of the enclosed room.

no longer smoke but steam.

spent words between friends and strangers alike.

the aloneness cuts through and slices

the moments like a dark dagger cutting

through the thick fog offered up by the

grand imagination of nature.  the hunger for

life is measured by one’s own cravings and

constitution to offer themselves up to the

magical moments we have with each other.
