Maya Ellenson is keen on creating unconventional poetry and prose, inspired by what the moment reveals.
At the Coffee Shop
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
on top of my freshly brewed expresso hovers
like a puffy cloud in the sunset
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.
