Two Tankas Involving Coffee

Americano Misto

the girl in Starbucks
fails to praise my awesome choice
nor does she inquire

’bout the progress of my day
I feel oddly unaffirmed.

The Evangelista

my local Starbucks
has an evangelista
she quotes the bible

while serving cappuccino
the old testament, mostly.
