Louise Coffee Shop

Updated on December 26, 2010

This is my time to savor. The stillness of the morning, quiet, peaceful

Louise Coffee Shop, the neon sign blinked and winked back at me from the other side

One of the lights bulbs in Louise had burned out, I wondered when Louise would replace it

She stood at the counter talking to one of loyal patrons, laughing out loud to something he’d


I sipped my coffee now wishing I’d ordered a doughnut too, watching the comings and goings

Of all different types of folk

Two cops came in and sat down at the counter ordering coffee and yes the doughnut I now wish

I had

In the booth near the back an elderly couple was sharing a plate of bacon and eggs, they looked

Happy enjoying their meal and something so sweet, they were holding hands like young lovers

Louise finally came over to see if I wanted a refill, I thanked her and said no my bus was

Arriving soon, it was time for me to go

She bid me farewell, saying she’d see me tomorrow

I smiled finished the last drop of my coffee and left her a nice tip

See ya tomorrow, I said, same place same time, took one last glace at the neon sign and shook

My head
