But, You Would Rather Stay

cafe culture
art and literature
in a coffee cup
gossip and sugar to
sweeten the taste
coffee breaks
potentially turn into
moments
strangers pretending to stare
in the opposite direction
secretly glancing over
neatly cut sandwiches
or over the rims of
empty cups
the ambience offers
opportunities
to imagine, perhaps to see
or break the numbing
dullness
of the average day
Time will tick tock
but you would rather stay

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
