Coffee

Coffee in New York

Paper throw-away cups

Buildings in ads

I’ve never been there

 

Coffee in London

Origins of my birthright

Guisborough, pottery tiles

I want to go there

 

Coffee in Cairo

Pyramids close to the city

Mystery, afterworlds

Turmoil keeps me away

 

Coffee at my table

Pottery cup, crack down the side

Family heirloom

I see the waterwheel. I’m here

 

Rachel Wright, Spectrum, A Poetry Memoir
