Chicago Coffee

Off of Lake Michigan

Down on Belmont

Next to Broadway

There is a place

That lines up

Out the door

Not always

But once more

The caramel taste hue

More than a drink

A life


It’s where I learned something

I can’t quite explain

But the reality of age

Has the same


As that coffee did

Years ago
