Coffee talk.

across from me

in conversation

that never waned

no hesitation,

no silent pauses,

no missing beats,

like old friends,

in the street,

and ease of words,

simple banter,

a laugh given,

without falter,

as the night drew old,

a blink of an eye,

another evening,

asleep with the sky;

pass the coffee,

let loose a smile,

we’ll drink it in,

and stay a while.
