The Brainy Stranger at the Book Store Coffee House - A Narrative Poem

The Brainy Stranger @ the Book Store Coffee House - A Narrative Poem One day at a book store, In the corner they sold, Some very flavorful coffee and biscuits cakes; "We've got some lovely shacks, Say’s the library hostess".

I wondered if she was at all zany. Before I could open my mouth, She shouted, "For you, I have some fresh hot chocolate caramels Yum!" I headed towards her, to the south "But how did you know?" I asked, "Do you want them or not?" she did say. Silently, the aroma she passed away. Then it vanished before I could pay. As I walked away I heard a crackle Or was it, perhaps, a hushed cackle? All those books on the shelf just fell on me…
