The Universal Coffee Bar

The cakes are sweet and

The coffee bites bitter back

Like God’s guard dogs.

Lights, reflected in smooth,

Mock-marble floors:

Pink, off-white, tetra-blue

Speak of different therapies

Available nearby. Patient escalator

Ferries blonde visions past and on.

The seats are warm, of course;

Talk is muted, safe. Everybody’s

here but nobody is listening.

Not harsh the light;

Shadows fall just right:

If seen – not recognised;

If recognised – not remarked …

And someone else will

Always pay your dues.
