“Gratitude to the Coffee Shop Owner”

I am tremendously grateful
to the owner of this coffee shop
for his extremely slow internet connection
for he subverts my compulsive need
to perpetually check my Facebook
and compels me to refocus my attention
on doing the things that I need to be doing,
such as writing this poem, or finally begin,
for Heaven’s sake finally begin, that story.
