Cafes’ and Cliches


These things all too common
Topics of conversation insignificant
Familiar faces smile
For our attendance is persistent

Pauses here and there
To tend to our overpriced drinks
Observing strangers passing by
Trying to guess what each one thinks

Then there are our phones
Pretending to have notifications
Laughing at messages from hours ago
We, the kings of exaggeration

But soon feeling “cool” passes
Along with our pretentious composure
So one of us pretends to have plans
And we both make for the door
