Tempting Fate...Over Coffee...At Mcdonalds - Poem by David Whalen


I buy my coffee and read a while
Get a refill
And then write a bit

But then there are mornings
In which I cast custom
To the winds

Let fate know
I give not
A whit

So instead I buy my coffee and write
Get a refill
And then read for a bit

A daring change of habit
But one’s soul must at times
Be allowed to fly free

Am I a creature of habit
Oh no,
No…not me
