Doing Time in the Coffee Shop
Thirty five years ago I met a man in the coffee shop.
He told me that he had been coming here for thirty five years.
I smiled at him and said really?
That was my first time.
Thirty five years later I am still here in the coffee shop.
Today I spoke to a young man.
I told him I had been coming here for thirty five years.
He smiled at me and said really?
This was his first time.
