Rob Schackne #270 - "You were an hour late"

You were an hour late
it was never about the coffee
but we ordered some anyway

you and I had a resilient streak
and we could have persisted
with the mighty mountain bean 
that was planted by the shiny sea
in crooked rows that talked too fast
about being not to blame for being scattered
but thank god we both had to be somewhere else
a carnival or a circus, a laboratory or zoo
that we could have both been married
(our so-called partners were heavy sleepers)
but we had talked for too many years
about never being late...
