Day of Upsets (From: The 239 Bus Ride Poems)

Sweet feelings of summer

into the cloudless blue

her denuded message:

Eroticism pure.

But in its sweetened height

a telephone call interrupts.

It’s about a French Press

coffee maker

she wishes to buy –

My god the sped-up life

continues even at

our mature age.

Why does B run with it

stating to have peace

in an eternal sleep?

Sun-flooded City of Saints

U4 will ferry me to

Place du Karl

walk underground to

Opera and meet her

for coffee at Stadtboden –

Floor of the City.

The usual friendly waitress

too busy to come and

serve me coffee

but when B calls her

she responds.

B is upset about her

mobile phone’s IT provider

who rips her off.

Enjoy the Cityfloor’s dusky


and then let’s buy a plunger

or French coffee maker

she concludes.
