She always tries

to pour a perfect cup of coffee.

She cares about her customers,

about their sorrows

and their unfolding futures.

The steam from the coffee

floats upwards

like her feelings for Frank,

who comes in

at five minutes to five every morning

to improve his life a little.

She hopes she can help him

by handing him a flawless

cup of coffee

as the sun lifts itself

and lets the new day start.

She smiles

because she knows

there will be another customer

after Frank.
