COFFEE SHOP DIALECTIC

Although it's
still so

early, and I
hesitate—to crack

the frail
shell of our mutual

church-
like silence

and risk rumpling
the napkin-

white purity
of such a beautifully

mechanical ritual—
I simply must

flag this vested
creature down

so that I might philosophize—
can a pitcher

really
be a pitcher—until

or unless,
it is

pitched? And
similarly,

would you
believe?—in order for this

cup
to work, there

needs
to be—a carafe.
