    the smell
    of beans grinding
    haiku

    out the door
    his creative ideas
    sipped to nothing

    university discussions
    the sound of brick

    acknowledging
    the final goodbye
    exit sign

    an empty penitentiary
    when was coffee
    needed most

    Written at OFC Coffee in Fairmont district, Philadelphia #PJPhilly16.

    springtime allergies
    beauty
    no beauty

    Pearl Jam
    a river flows
    to many cities

    counting chapters
    tomorrow is
    the final page minus one

    the espresso machine
    is goldenrod yellow
    does it know

    forget the rain and cold
    forget allergies
    10 Club tickets

    grow old
    with music
    roll call

    open a book
    the sound
    of potential

    original
    of action or thought
    slogan

    South Philly
    loves Pearl Jam
    swinging orange banner

    going home
    searching
    and searching

    the poetic goal
    always
    available

    a poetic goal
    always a
    second option

    after the concert
    searching for a cab
    always searching

    last coffee in philly
    see you in boston
    paper cup

    Final haiku from coffee shops in Philadelphia during vacation to see #PJPhilly16

    unknown and forgotten
    police barricade
    outside the window

    the green light
    breaking
    anticipation

    without an audience
    tiles and metal

    I write
    communion

    threatening rain
    a black and white

    a couple
    moves a stroller
    public art

    an artist
    without materials
    first page

    they drive
    away from me
    new bracelet

    my hands
    so many veins
    the work, the joy!

    learning to #knit
    she knows winter
    in a new way

    they cut trees
    entangled with wires
    chicken or the egg

    unemployed
    I wear my best earring
    to coffee

    as she walks away
    her coat is less glamorous
    coffee break

    black and white
    glass bracelet
    pulsating words

    the street
    allows the bus
    to turn left

    unemployed
    without poetry books
    red light at midnight

    what career
    protected
    pen paper poem

    they can’t like my
    unwritten poem
    unemployment

    turn the page
    raindrops within raindrops
    on the patio

    grinding beans
    smelling memories
    and blank pages

    fall deep
    into a favorite author’s first paragraph
    coffee orders

    outside a good story
    hours become
    unread words

    thinking of storytellers
    pen ink
    on my lip

    a store’s calling card
    a bookmark
    where two thoughts meet

    without the wind
    the absence of coffee
    held between the leaves
    There is no such thing as leftover pizza. There is now pizza and later pizza. - anonymous

    my umbrella
    shooed
    the rain away

    in the glass door
    one lamp becomes three
    happy hour

    shrinking day
    behind the clouds
    Division Series

    *******************
    the phone
    directed me
    acting lost in autumn

    *******************
    two women
    in afternoon shadows
    I couldn’t see

    ******************
    crossing the street
    the sounds
    of a rainy autumn afternoon

    ******************
    create cities
    of street signs and shop names
    autumn walk

    ******************
    time to wait
    for coffee
    work plans of the heart

    ******************
    walking through
    the neighborhoods
    lights on during the day
    There is no such thing as leftover pizza. There is now pizza and later pizza. - anonymous
