Starbucks- Tokyo

Experiencing

The surreal

Of Starbucks

In Tokyo-

Soaking

In the disembodied

Familiarity

Of the white, green and black

With a totally different

Accent

On a Friday

Night

In the hippest city

In the world,

As rain falls

To the street

And clings

To  my clothes

And hair.

“American”

Christmas music

Plays, thankfully,

In the background-

Drowned out

By the voices

Of young Japanese

Gathering

At 10:00PM

After a long week

Trapped by duty

And an office.

My blissful role

Of passive observer

Goes completely

Unnoticed,

Sitting in the corner

With a pen in hand,

Quietly blending in

To the noisy background,

Trying

So hard

To capture it all.
