The world this morning looked so different
Familiar as a friend and fantastic as a surreal discovery
The sunbeams on the building
The crowd with people running in their busy little bubbles
Yellow cabs honking, musicians in the subway, beggars, people arguing on the street
A latino dude enjoying the savor of his coffee in Chinatown Dragon Land
Sharing his pleasure loud and shouting with enthusiasm
Mami! Your coffee is so good! It’s a five dollar coffee not a one dollar coffee!
Thank you mami I love you! I will come again tomorrow!
The Chinese waitresses were still laughing and giggling after the happy latino dude left.
The world this morning felt so strange maybe because I used to be the same and now
I’m a different… stranger
