i was walking in the rain
my lily hopes profanely stained
trying to keep my thoughts on the train of sanity

my fingers numbly freezing,
walking over concrete that just centuries ago was clover,
trying too hard not to get run over
(wasn't the same part of me that
had just been comfortable
in a decadent coffee and bagel house)

i made it through the rain
arrived at the public library
and have somehow found the drive
to type this a third alive

children, i warn you against the bottle

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complicated, and more violent. It takes a lot of courage... and a touch of brilliance to move things in the other direction."

I know that coffee house/bagel shop....'s right across the street from the courthouse.

You take this mind right to those cold streets, where winter winds blow at 20 degrees and breath crystalizes on the exhale.

Being there now, even only in my mind, makes me want that bottle against which you warn. Perhaps it's just too many hours having been spent in front of Judge Rambo. Kind and fair as he is, the circumstances of my K-Falls visits were never happy ones...such is the nature of the courthouse.

That's something else, deleted. Except that I'm actually referring to a different coffee-house further from the courthouse.
But the coffeehouse you're talking about: "The Swan Bakery" is one of my favorite places on earth. Ever since I was a kid, I hang out there, chat with people, play chess, write poetry, etc. I wrote an ode to it:

Also, you may find the woodlands interesting.

best wishes,
