Book Store Coffee House

A Beat poem

In the windows I see figures,
Lost souls in books and coffee.
Young cats, no trouble,
Only cash from Daddy's pocket.
Brooding faces looking sideways,
At a mirror.
Each a reflection of what others want to see.
No one really wants to be,
What they really can be.
All gone on a trip read in a magazine.

 

Explanation:
I wrote this as an entry into a beat (as in beatnik) poetry contest. They never got back to me. It's about the obsession with used books and coffee that seems to be the trend around New York.
