Coffee: Cafe Pajaro Extra Dark, Trader Joe’s
And it was simple – coffee, autumn, all I needed.
I finished ‘Another Country.’ Bookless, I drove to Durham to go to the bookstore. I remembered college, I’d been going there since college – The Regulator.
9th Street in Saturday clothes – kids and cups of hot drinks. The stores were crowded. We all know Christmas is coming. Concrete smells, punctuated with cinnamon candles.
I met a poet by the road who read me two pages of his work. They were joyous, his words, and I loved him for it.
Currently Reading: Another Country, James Baldwin
