we etch foam roses
in velvet golden crema.
later, the jitters.
commuters hurry
twenty ounce soy cap to-go,
barista's nightmare.
text messages fly
like birds caught in winter winds
five cents a minute.

Some days, the cafe gets a little bit slow and the mind, it wanders.

Is there a space near where the line forms where you can post poetry? Something to keep the crowds engaged while they wait for that soy drycap? These need to be published.

Hey was that you on knitty gritty yesterday?
Seems I remember you saying that you knit socks and it looked like it might be you.
Cookie posted some pics on her webpage, tivo'd from tv.
Looked like fun.

Liz, OMG, that is me! I had no idea it had aired already. Shiny! I will have to see if I can get a copy - I'd like to see it *grin*

It was fun and Cookie was great.

Roxie, working on a dry erase board for the front counter, actually :-)
