The doorshakes
The bronze handle
Twists excessively to theleft
A bell chimes
The peace from inside
Breaksmomentarily
Customers' eyes
Warmly veer
From priorengagements
To settle their
Curious minds
The doorshuts
Restoring the serenity
Of the warm coffeeshop
Cigarette smoke
Quickly smothers
The freshwinter air
A vigilant aroma
Of coffee beans
Strikessuddenly
One refreshing sip
Of the lusciousdrink
Warms the entire body
From the coldwooden
Table stools beneath
