Well, as it is a somewhat Frosty night ...
Gail Ann's Coffee Shop
I have been one acquainted with the crueller,
With doughnuts glazed, with savoury éclairs,
With caffeine sharpening wits both dull and duller.
The kindly Katerina will prepare
An English muffin with sausage, egg, and cheese.
The warmly smiling "regulars" are there.
I've walked the streets in an October breeze
Searching for breakfast, tasty, filling, cheap ---
The rumbling tummy must be put at ease.
Into Gail Ann's I sprint. I almost leap!
Small coffee and a plain bagel to go!
And now, no longer thick with last night's sleep,
With spirits not too high and not too low,
I am acquainted with a cuppa joe.
