Granville's Cafe

Laugh, squeal,
Interpret laughs,
Sip, grimace, snort,
Try to get free re-fills,
Poke at smoke rings,
Drink Jet Fuel
(Two shots of cappuccino
In a milk shake),
Praise lead guitarists as
Obscure as Johnny Winter,
Condemn ismism,
Dream about fortunes,
And power--
Which one wouldn't admit
To dreaming about--

Admit to living Freudian/Jungian
Jungle lives
In which "east is east
And west is west"--
And if anybody forces the
Two together,
Quick tongues
Kill the romance,
Make pride scarlet,
Like cappuccino-bitterness
On a taste bud.
