vale si

just a cup of coffee

resting in the shade

out on the stones

jacaranda overhead

between places

here coming from back there

not yet got to where

spaces I was going

& as the senorita says to me

con leche?

I hear through the door

Joni’s ‘a day in the garden’

sweet horn playing low

& I’m thinking of you

while this Iberian beauty

stares at me

I say vale si

& smile

but the damage is done

a cup of coffee will not heal this
