Solstice Cafe

There’s poetry

Written in silence

Alone

In a notebook or on a scrap of paper

At your keyboard

Intellectually

Effete

Then there is spoken word

With a crowd of enthusiasts

Egging on the perps

Chirps

And calling for performance

Chops

It’s lots

Lost

Courage ain’t never an issue

When spoken words slam into

Poets

Unfettered for an evening

Finger snapping

Heckling in good fun

Poetically

With rockstar abandon

Digging the vibe

Leaping from word to word

Like a salmon climbing

The waters of its birth

Like a bird finding a home it never knew

Like me

Finding you

Finding a voice

Crying out into the night

With enthusiasm

Nothing new

Here I am

True
