Barista Beyond Compare A Company That Shares

Starbucks in Costa Mesa at Wilson and Harbor was a watering hole to often open the door
Long table against the wall with lots of plugs, conversations with students, writers, entrepreneurs in store
A favorite caffeine addiction place where the iambics quickly fell into place
Where ideas and conversations could occur at an easy pace
The long table during a Christmas season became a small square
Only 4 not 8 tethered to juice could now sit there
Great baristas but the ambiance gone and still like Fairbanks at 40 below
Creativity stunted  more and more choosing not to go
In a creative spring following a SOTUS classic event
With poems in gestation forming right and left decided a place to be sent
Found a plug and better yet
Served by a barista my name not to forget
Carol is like a skater moving at great uninterrupted speed
Brew into a cup the Sumatra instead of the Pikes that no one needs
Good to be back and hope the Starbucks’ leaders on their promise come through
Pass on some of the tax cuts to those who serve the needed caffeine brew
