Downbound train

 

 

Entitlement and the commuter

 

At the station, I watched a hipster in crepe-soled shoes

Abuse an already harried kiosk attendant because

His coffee wasn’t the exact right temperature

Apparently, to a hipster

The whole world’s a Starbucks

 

The girl behind the counter

Was young, an immigrant just trying to make

An honest crust

I’m guessing hip Narcissus

Hates Trump for his intolerance

 

Her polite smile never wavered

Below those anxious eyes

As she made his coffee twice

And the line behind him got longer

I missed my train and he was still bitching.

 

At least he gave me something to write about today.
