"Cafe Cucina" - North Adelaide
I peeked throught the window half expecting to find Ernest Hemingway
sitting in a corner deep in thought - pen in hand
crumpled notes beside him on the table
the sort of place one would have expected to find him in,
comfortable with a touch of - je ne sais quoi
and the smell of good coffee
pervading the air!!
"It was a pleasant cafe - warm and clean and friendly
I hung up my old waterproof on the coat rack to dry
and put my worn and weathered felt hat
on the rack above the bench and ordered a cafe au lait.
The waiter brought it and I took out a notebook
from the pocket of the coat and a pencil
and I started to write"
