On Kilpatrick & Denver,
Up the St. From a home,
The table was set:
Watermelon & blackened catfish
Below a painted portrait:
King & Malcolm X___
Love & 😊s, jazz on the radio…
We were across the country on our own @ a beautiful chance cafe.
Hot sauce lined the counter in a measured row.
We sat in two seats a window view of the road,
And we got our coffee in cups to go.
