After the turret stairs

 


After the turret stairs

- Arthur Broomfield (Ireland)

 

In another time, when this is a theme park

or the dredged remnant

of an orange grove,

or the Mars office of the New York

stock exchange,

 

a couple will surmise,

as they stroll home in

a dewy twilight, a cyber rose

clasped in her hand,

that here had been a coffee shop, once.

 

He might say, those two used to meet here,

 regular like, you know?

Oh! she may say,   

listening for the hiss of steam

from the Costa Express

drift across the ethereal, 

I can smell the cappuccino,

it must have been something special.
