A Day Grind

given a free coffee—
it was
just sittin’ there
thought you’d like it

yeah, I’ll take it

I’ll fake till I make it

sitting in
another shop
ain’t it pleasant?

yeah, enough to
make a ritual of it

this narrative
of mine presses forth
while we disgust
one another
while the world
spins like another

bad night

this second cup
could cause
my heart to
to a hault

but I cannot turn
flow service
beverage by
will of Providence

politely accept your gift
and wave
to your friends
