The sun shifts it’s glow,
it’s shine a moody amber,
casting shadows under the awning.
The air grows cold and clear
while we exclaim novel raison d’êtres,
planning passionately dreams of a life possible,
our minds filled with ill informed hope.
On the ulterior side of this afternoon
Fluorescent lights illuminate our passage to a new venue.
caffeine’s era has passed
and now we smooth
We pour jest and ease
precision lost in each sip.
We engage in seamless transfusions
of love and banter
ascending to states
In our bazaar we’re merchants of cool
our minds covertly altered.
A casual confidence a medallion proudly on display.
The intimacy of café, an experience passé.
Here, our crowd swells.
Shrieks and shouts fill the set of our exuberant joy;
former betas transformed alpha.
Spilled heureuse soaks the parquet platforms,
as the clock flirts AM;
finesse replaced with joyous stupor.
Emotive actions teeter on taste’s precipice
Its edge blurred by society’s ease.
And this night ends
divorced from its birth;
the eve having crept to a sleepless dawn.
The vendors of cool out-of-stock,
now bumbling fools fumbling a jumbled babble,
their clumsy moves spilled in the night’s shambles.
With society’s poison we rewrite,
we alter and augment.
To be both suave and sharp,
wielding a dual edged personality,
To adapt to each situation.
Cured of all society’s ills
by society’s liquid ease.
