Disgruntled Coffee Clerk by Alyssa Trivett

They chip change
on sugar coated counters
with coffee creamer
and milk stained blood spots
like a basketball off a cracked garage backboard
and sniffs in java scents
as the shaky hands
take orders and direct traffic
of plastic mugs waiting for
their new owner to
take ’em home,
or anywhere else,
for that matter.
