IN THE COFFEE BAR

I sit in this tiny coffee bar.
I am having my usual.
Same o, same o.

25 July 2012 Wednesday 01:01
I sit in this tiny coffee bar.
I am having my usual.
Same o, same o.

This place is precisely like yesterday,
with its old red wallpaper and golden flowers,
round brown tables with unmatched chairs.

And the old man
who comes to the work everyday,
with  his bitter smile,
and dirty white shirt,
and the same customers,
with their silly jokes
and nonsense stories.

And I almost know everyone
some by name!
Without looking at them,
or saying hello to them.

The green cup is in front of me
the green cup is looking at me!
The same one I had yesterday,
and might have tomorrow.
The green cup is gloomy and cheerless
just like yesterday
and perhaps tomorrow. 

I look around and try
try, as hard as I can,
to think of something entirely new.
But everything is as usual!

Another start
another end,
another start
another end,

and the green cup is staring at me.
with the same depressing look.

“You are wrong my friend!”
says the green cup chaotically!
“This is how you see the world,
today is not the same.

It is another day.
with its own story of
magnificence and cruelty. 

You are the one
who wants to see it as yesterday!


To day I look differently,
act differently,
talk differently,
and think differently.

I know more than yesterday
and less than tomorrow.”
