Gone For Coffee #DverseQuadrille

Instead of speaking

she breathes

across the skin of her coffee.

Whispers,

the words unwanted

to an empty chair across

and closes her eyes,

sips her drink,

when nothing is said

in return

and blots a last goodbye

on a napkin

from the counter.

  1. This one reminds me of a black and white French film, Carol! I love the opening lines and can imagine that breath and the ripple on the coffee skin, and ‘blots a last goodbye on a napkin from the counter’ is a fabulous ending.
