Poetry

Chapter 1

So many sounds

Idle chit chat

Laughter from across Starbucks' floor

I listen, sitting alone but not lonely

Here I am

Waiting for inspiration

Refreshing chill in my chest from

My iced peppermint green tea

So, if you see me out somewhere

Sitting alone

In a cafe

A restaurant

Or some other capitalist refuge

Feel free to say hello in whatever language you know

For I listen, usually with a smile

And who knows

Perhaps I'll write you into my tales

And you'll have a new piece of my soul

To weave upon the tapestry of your history
