Coffee and Books
When finally the big one hits
this window
will snap and slide

like sheet ice to the sidewalk
splintering images
of everything just seen.

The girl working the espresso machine,
hands burnt,
will shout what's happening.

My coffee will flood my notebook
blotting out
this page, these words.
