Starbucks

Starbucks

Tinakam mo ako ng
‘yong piso ‘sang patak na kape.

ng pagkakataong
panlasa ko’y dantayan
ng kulturang pilantik-daliri-kadiri.

ng tsansang
tanungin kung “For here?”
na di miminsang pinagtripan kong
sagutin ng “No. For there…”

sabay turo ng punggok kong
hintuturo sa sofang aking magiging
luklukan habang
por segundo kong ninanamnam ang ‘yong
piso ‘sang patak na

kape.
