Cafe Greetings


How poetic strangers once met in a faraway cafe

Overseas and over exes

Let's see she said, I'll have the angel hair coffee and

A bowl of sugar coated fritoes

I'm too thin skinned to wait for this sunlamp to dim and

Do something about those mosquitoes

With a mirror in his eye and a tear in his ears

He agreed with a smile to meet later by the way

It was not so much the sound of her voice as

Just what she had to say,

When poetic strangers meet in a faraway cafe . .

There are so many things to feast upon in this short poem. I particularly liked 'Overseas and over exes" - just four words that cemented the scene. Well done. Blessings, Allen

These greetings are precious in contrast to how the world is these days.
