Rant



Sitting in a cafe with a cup of hot tea
I had ordered but did not want
I wondered if anything creative
could come out of the drone
of the 80's rock playing overhead,
the relentless bids for my attention
in the local rag of boosterism
for marble kitchen countertops,
and botox during your lunch hour,
and a new house with a view of the lake.

I like a lake view, but my countertops and fine lines are okay, for now ;)

Unwanted cup and stylized capitalist Sirens hit a high point by landing in an attractive photo :)

I thought it all fitting suffused in the garish light of the cafe :)
