slightly cloudy morning
red umbrellas, glass table tops
steel high-back chairs
curly designs over straight lines
crimson cushions
sipping mocha latte
from a bowl-like mug
on a saucer, of course.
buttered sourdough toast
its warm, hard and porous texture
tickles my tongue
I’m reading a romance novel
at the outdoor cafe
but I am
somewhere else
