Coffee Shop Chatter: A FF55 post

coed enthralled...
w/college boy reciting his poetic art
over herbal tea

soccer moms relaxing
between carpools, laughing
over lattes, decaf non-fat

old timers debating
politics, mourning youth,
over steamy mugs, strong & black

professors tutoring
students, sharing knowledge
over hazelnut red-eyes

Today’s blend,
staining my cup
while eavesdropping to
coffee shop chatter
in caffeinated air 


Can you describe your morning in exactly 55 words?

Every Friday night for YEARS I spent at Borders doing that exact same thing....
Shame, Barnes and Noble just ain't the same.

That sounds like a perfect way to spend a morning. Especially if you can catch some interesting stories :)

It is fun to sit and people watch. Al the different quirks we have that separate us all from uniformity.
Nice 55 :)

Oh, yes.

I've been in that coffee shop.

Way to bring it to life, Polly!

I think it's an excellent replacement for the old corner bar--where everybody ends up with the same cry-in-their-beer stories anyway. Yes, Virginia, there is progress. Great 55.
