Coffee House, Allahabad

coffee houses in Bangalore
teach me
what lakes teach the moon.

which is to say,
I’ve spent nights
figuring out the slow processes
of filtering coffee,
to constantly list this practice
as a poor excuse for an addiction

Coffee House,
which begins at Civil Lines,
in Allahabad,
and ends nowhere in particular,
teaches me
what blankets teach winter.

to yearn;
to leave.
