Calm & Aloof

~

The

Lightning bolt

Cracks & poof

Suddenly I am calm & aloof

~

Oh wily spirit dame

You’ve smoldered my hat

Oh smiley spirit dame

How’d you learn to do that?

~

I don’t remember standing-up

Some how in suit n’ tails dressed-up

Holding in my hand a silver tray all shined-up

on which sits a coffee pot & cup

~

Oh smily spirit dame

In flannel shirt & jeans

Oh wily spirit dame

How’d you find the means?

~

“Serve me”

Condescendingly says you

Sitting at a table that is ridiculously

overdue

~

~

The colossal

Cathedral inside a humble tent

Smiles like God

At the tail-end of Lent

~

The hot coffee I calmly aloofly pour

Like I’ve done this some place else before

“We’re equals.  You may sit too.”

Magnanimously says you

~

& I better believe

It’s true

As one coffee cup

Turns into two

!
