At Ströck’s

Being early for a meeting

Have a peek into Ströck at


Espresso macchiato and

A seat in the Souterrain’s

Light wood paneled space

Wooden laid floor veneer

Well-bearable and seldom

Filled to capacity.

The casual poet’s haunt

Elderly women chit-chat

Mixed with a lively discourse

By two business friends.

A child’s high voice explores

The world around to her Mom

Otherwise reasonably quaint

The patina of humming will

Dissolve quite quickly

Once the patrons have

Munched their cakes and

Downed their coffees or


Meanwhile it’s pleasant to

Communicate with my Muse

And remember her lively ways.

Time to conclude some of

These thoughts

Thanking A for another

Beautiful morning.
