Cafe Scenes


her white and orange

dotted shirt matches

her Styrofoam cup

with spacious white

and pinky/orange stars


sitting side by side

the boyfriend and girlfriend

mirror each other,

both wearing black and white

striped T-shirts with denim –

an expression of their bond


a middle age couple

engage in intense conversation

while eating kebabs

and sipping water –

fully present with each other

contrasting with the young man

focused on his computer game,

oblivious to others

locked in his own world

catching the morning train

all around me city workers

are engrossed in their iPhones,

on the afternoon train

older people gaze out the window

avoiding eye contact with each other –

on both trips people try escaping

from human contact,

disengaging from their fellows

into their private internal worlds –

an inward looking culture,

people tuned into their own tribe
