Expresso Reveries

Maya Ellenson is keen on creating unconventional poetry and prose, inspired by what the moment reveals.

Sliding into Yesterday

Savoring a bite of a banana tart

at the coffee shop


at least for now

no more half-faced patrons


around the rustic table

with cozy wooden chairs

faces clear


lingering smiles

locked


the foam

on top of my freshly brewed expresso hovers

like a puffy cloud in the sunset

untouched


my fleeting excuse to stay

with my face unmasked

just for a bit longer . . .


the human faces around

becoming a portal into

a some kind of entrancing déjà vu


what if it's still yesterday

Enjoyable poem and photos, Maya. Yes, we all look for excuses to be able to take the mask off for awhile.
