lingering and levering in the coffee shop.

A coffee shop lingers on the edge of the concrete jungle of my home town
where folks gather or sit
alone gazing into the soft glow of computer screens.

The woody aroma of truth
rises as conversations turn
to church planting and baby raising.

Small talk
small business
small moments of life brewing as wisdom
streams through the up and down pumping of
air pot levers.

An ambulance screams over the whir
of the grinder.

Life.

Goes.

On.
