Keep us in color. Mute the traffic and sparrows dominating the café trees.
Focus on the table, how we stare at white cups waiting to be filled, gold spoons to be used, stirring in more than sweetener, suave poise.
The waiter will come in moments not seconds. We are left to anticipate the scent of espresso,
the tang of apricots, and what must be said about our union.
Clouds hang closer, pale limestone gray like The Church of The Holy Maiden, La Doncella Santa perched on the hill. ____________________________________ The print is called "Conversation" by Andy Powell.
