In Coffee Veritas

 

In Coffee Veritas

 

I drink coffee, hot & thick,

from a cup I took from a

hotel in Slovenia

and admire the shapes

of the clouds

through the vast window

 

Somewhere else

in the distance

a bell is ringing from a tower

on a lush hill

announcing the arrival

of the end of one

more day of our lives

 

Vicissitude

always best to remain

indifferent

because the sun

will descend

the curtain will close

 

And I will continue to be

astonished by this life

in this body and pause

for as many sunsets

as I am given

 

-          XX-XI-XX & XXIII-XI-XX,  Casteau

 

Michael Adubato

  

Michael Adubato was born and raised in New Jersey but moved across the ocean and settled in Belgium, mainly because the beer and soccer are better. When he’s not at a stadium watching a game, he’s thinking about where to go for the next game. He also writes about those games for the website Yanks Abroad when the poems aren’t flowing. His first book of poetry is also in the works. He has been previously published in Ariel Chart.
