COFFEE IN A CAFÉ CALLED CONTENTEDNESS
Yet uniquely unrepentant
He’s content with his surroundings
Content to do that which he must…….
to do something he actually enjoys
I suppose ninety-six years tempers one’s desire and demand for delight……..
Ninety-six years is midnight……….
Come what might
He’s content to café a coffee
Or bear the man he sips and sits aside
Another soul he takes,
Ninety-six with dementia denied
Ninety-six with death defied
While his contentedness is dignified and defined
Ninety-six is ample time to become so well- refined
Long ago having cast off the mighty nine to five
Content solely to still be alive
While others may see half-past midnight as looming but a fortnight away
Come what may
I hear him say
“Please, may I have another cup of coffee”
A gent content with his beverage begotten
nor too often……
Ninety-six and my heart is warmed by an oven of admiration for a man so amiably content
With contentedness, by comfort, so long ago lent
A gentle gent who throws a breeze of ease into life’s midnight mix
Oh so very gentle at ninety-six
No more hide and go seek, no more marbles and no more pick-up sticks
done taking his licks
