Ode to the Mercury Cafe...a poem

The Mercury Cafe-my photo

Ode to the Mercury Cafe
By Michelle R aka Naila Moon of the Grey Wolf

I have come to this
the Mercury Cafe,
to hear the likes
of John, Mary and Sue
or maybe Shakespear too.

I strain to listen
to those
on this stage
we could call

The prose pours forth
ticking away
at time.
The words
of hapiness
and wonder.

These words
shape us
and have meaning.

In the listening
we become better people
and possibly
a hope
for another.
