Two poems in a cafe

  I don’t do


I don’t do anonymous stuff

When I hack I hack clean and clear

What are laws but a set of codes

Which lawyers hack for the pleasure of rich old men


I don’t do little kids,pretty boys,weird deviations

When I do I do it like a gentleman

With varying proportions

Of gentleness and manliness


I don’t do routines, normal nine to fives

When I do such things I get bored

Not that I don’t care about the money

It is just the way the old man coded me in



Sitting today

Sitting today in a nice café

Sometimes I wish I had a friend

To share my lemonade and chai latte

But mostly I have been grateful for the quiet


No beautiful strangers are there to disturb my thoughts

No ugly specimens of my race to test my faith in humanity

It disturbs me sometimes

How I have begun to love my solitude


Alone, lonely and quietly writing these thoughts

No more drama no more noise no more fighting

That’s how we like to sit

Sit quietly in the corner of a café today
