Stray Cat Café

On a dreary day too poor for a name,
He dragged himself down to the little café,
Flat white and a paper, always the same,
He fumbled for coins and something to say,
His hand struck silver, but his mind no gold,
The coffee machine frothed a mocking hiss,
His soft fingers touched the counter so cold,
And there she was, a sunny shining miss,
All glowing with life and lighter than air,
Pink lemonade cheeks and strawberry lips,
A chef’s hat hiding her blonde wistful hair,
Uniform jealously guarding her hips,
As soon as she smiled, his fears departed, ...

For Art

And what artist now, tomorrow or then
Has not thought themself a bit of alright
Despite nagging doubt and the malice of men
But bartered a soul for the sake of their craft
And struck themself down again and again
To drag something out of their own black abyss
With fast beating heart, by brush, string or pen
Singed and scarred and covered in piss
What artist now, tomorrow or then?
