TREND Magazine: Navagation Bar


Not This Time

Someone walks in the door
of the cafe
momentarily blocking the sun
all eyes look up
from the manuscripts
the notebooks
the conversations on fire
and look long enough to register:
no, not this one
the messiah
the hero
the great love
not this time
maybe next time


-- David Thornbrugh
