Coffee Shop
by Carl Palmer

she surveys her path
rehearses each movement
inventories her items
in preparation for her trip
through the coffee shop
maze of scattered tables
to the door marked Ladies
across the room

should she leave her jacket
mark her place as occupied
prevent the table being cleared
tea from being thrown away
would her umbrella be prey
that a passerby may borrow
for the misty rain
of a northwest afternoon
