Coffee time 

standing in line we argue

About who should be served first.

She says “You go ahead, I don’t know what I want.”

I say she should go first. 

She slips behind me and I go first.

She argues with herself as to whether

To get coffee or breakfast. 

I argue for protein if she hasn’t had breakfast?

But the glass case is filled with pastries

And beer.

She says”It’s too early for beer. 

I point to the cups labeled oatmeal kit

She nods and I collect my thick slice

Of banana bread and go to find a table.

Unobserved she brings my cup 

Of soy latte

With a design on top.

Thanks Lizbeth
