I Have No Friends

By David Jowitt

I have no friends
but Saturday morning I go down stairs
to the cafe below

here I have discovered the satisfaction
of being known as a regular

up at the counter
I see one of the few
faces that I can put a name to

they know exactly what
my order is

then I walk away
to my favourite corner with
my favourite drink

and there I can hear every customers
conversation
without being seen or heard by myself.
