Baristas At Flank Speed

Sitting in a Starbucks near Bristol and Redhill
Transported back to Alaska to fight the chill
Airconditioning cranked down to near Fairbanks clime
Something about the cold that brings out the Alaskanpoet rhyme
Watching a barista with a name of Jess plying her caffeine rounds
A burst of total speed dispensing the liquid from the coffee grounds
Maybe because this is a drive through the baristas are driven by speed
A sense of urgency to give the customers the caffeine they need
Poetry and beauty in motion defines this barista Jess
A dynamo in shapely black dress
A pony tail like tail feathers to flight stabilize
Service and the right attitude never a surprise  
Others may try to the growth of Starbucks suppress
To know they will fail due to the baristas just come to this address
