the smell of cheap coffee is bliss
thousands of people
and a burp

some girl sitting in the bamboo
looking at the coconut trees and the star behind it
laughing locals, sleeping human

various stimuli
my senses can't take it all
my mind chooses some
and it's as pleasant as pleasant

everything's shit
yet it feels like no shit at all
what awakes soul?
if not words, maybe caffeine

psychology says
gratefulness is one way to happiness
I therefore confirm it

if someone's asking for connection
just look at the moon
stare till u see those lines
I found it
