The coffee table of hope


On a summer sun,

Beside the floor to ceiling glass wall

Placed are fours in brown

Always a little down

Always a little below

Always an excuse to expand on the hello


Five glossy magazines,

three worn out brochures

Some tea stains on a coffee table for sure

A coaster rests like a stone on a wide dessert

Strong and proud


I have for years drank coffee

Sitting beside this,

Coffee table- Hoping to find the sweetness

In the shared bitterness we have purchased.
