Poetry: Cafe

Cafe

by Kent Malcom

The door trips the bell to a small-town cafe
**********************************She walks in
silence drips through grease scented air
feeling the heat of coffee and whispers
walking slowly to let gossip rise
*********************************She realizes
thirty-five years is not enough time
to open a hometown mind
or fade into their shade of white
