You're more or less

Berkshire County Cafe, August 17th, 2016
Alan and Max were chatting at the table next to me. I was more interested in their stories than in my own work. I asked them to write a poem and they both agreed. That is rare. Usually only one will say yes. It is so much fun to see two minds at work. The contrast between the inner and outer workings is fascinating. Alan is a playwright.

You’re more / or less
a punk who thinks
the fact of your coffee
consumption makes you
noteworthy. Coffee makes me
vomit. You’re more
likely to like me
if we both drink it.
I acquired the taste
not the stomach.
Tell me what you drink.
