This is a virtual cafe where all ideas are entertained all facts discerned, all topics discussed. And just because the proprietor has a passion for Christ, books, and the Acoustic guitar, that doesn't mean you can't veer wildly off into different subjects. So, come in, have a coffee (imported especially from Verble's finca in El Salvador), and talk about whatever you want.

Overheard at Booth 1: The Wife's Response to WCW's "This Is Just to Say"
This Is Just To Say
William Carlos Williams, 1883 - 1963
I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold
The Wife’s Response to William Carlos Williams's “This Is Just to Say”
What the hell were you thinking eating the plums in the icebox you knew that I was saving them for the pie I was going to make for Mr and Mrs Velasquez when they come over for dinner on Saturday night I told you this but you never listen now do you, I swear I don’t think you hear me at all sometimes because your head is always in the clouds and you’re always writing your poetry and maybe you’ll try to make a poem out of this and laugh it off and all your readers will think you are a “great poet” but really you were just selfish, eating all the plums when you knew they were for our guests, well then, you better just sell another poem to some magazine so that we can afford to go out and buy another bunch before Saturday, how’s that for poetry, Mr Poet?
