had a down morning, woke up and showered early enough to let my hair dry with its natural curl, walked to work in the damp air, fumbling songs cause every one took my mind right back where i was trying to pull it from, a sting still radiating from yesterdays slap to the face call. turned on the lights and started the brewers focused on breathing steady as michael came through the door declaring that he had a lesson for me today.
with my usual tone of barista sass i asked “oh yah whats that?”
and with no knowledge of the morning i had had, he leaned in and said gently, “let go of the past. its gone now, you dont want that.”
"seems so easy, but breaks the heart" i said
“well, thats why we’ve got each other.”
oy, coffee shop regulars.
