return to the shop:

Ides of November

fat foreign men walking
slowly kicking over
a beggars cup
women & men dressed
for success w/ nothing
to say
workers paving, mixing
cement, yelling, smoking
stopping traffic
girls are walking with
their skirts
it's halfway through
legs are embers
left from fall
it's the 15th day
and all is well
. . .

Conn Ave Coffee

Coffee shops on Conn Ave
the coffee costs too much
the workers are paid too little
I am never satisfied
with my drink
but I am more awake
and much more aware
of my poor purchase
in caffinated hindsight
