	Sipping tea at Le Cafe
	See bamboo chairs
	Reflect sorrows of afternoon,
	Dust bursts off my tongue
	Songs of bygone 
	Sheepish glance at shady glass.
	Then, for the fourth time 
	I observe the clock-
	Have a date with the Mountain
	Will he come by?
	Trumpet blasts at crow's tune
	Air is intense- spit and angst
	Blow the throats of 
	Disguised pawns 
	Breasts sigh as girls 
	Slide at sideways tide
	Stains surface on my white tie
	A frog mourns a lost lagoon-
	Have a date with the Mountain
	Will he come by?
	Rain now drops in dismal pace
	A mere glance to casual mate
	Oozes streams of sweat and haze
	Birds trade wings to random crumbs
	I am a goon longing for past
	A twig waves to passing lark
	Willing to bark-
	Have a date with the Mountain
	Will he come by?
