At Starbucks - Poem by Enriquito Lucero Jr.

'What's on a man's mind? It's eating muffin.

At the corner of Starbucks
I sat and with a cigarette,
Sipping coffee at most killing time
And poisoning my breath.

A lady was staring at me,
My confidence whispered so
I rolled my eyes, It caught hers
With a crime she’s planning to do.

Of thirst, she playfully sipped her straw,
Winked and implied somethin’
As on a plate in full display
Untouched, was a whole muffin.




'You cannot eat your muffin and have it too'

At the corner of Starbucks
I sat still and pondered deeper,
My coffee was half-full
And my body was hot like fever.

I could have easily traveled
Into the beam of her stare
If only I’m not booked
To meet a gal I have an affair.

Then she arrived wearing a smile
Unknown to her where I’ve been,
Where the lady had fled
Leaving a plate and the whole muffin.




'Some muffins deserve to be in the sink'

I stood, kissed and hugged her too,
Out from my pocket, a small box!
As we grabbed our seats while the time ceased
At the corner of Starbucks!

There were two golden rings inside:
A symbol, a pact of love.
In her smile was a thought:
I gave up! It’s me she’ll always have.

Then we embraced as we depart,
Saw a waiter with a tray
Cleaning the tables, taking the plates
With the muffin away.
