What’s for Lunch, lunch or coffee?


Ruth walks in


with universal ebb flow

but not herself, a

self-made trick.

Self-inflicted, but

own reward,

but everything else

too, so, as soon as she could,

Ruth blossomed.

recognition, or

do or don’t follow your heart.

month coffee enough?

Yes it is, you fool.
