Coffee Break

Sometime after lunch
But before the end of the day
A moment
To take a quick
From the work
From the aggravation
To discuss
Sociological Quandaries
A walk around the block.
A journey to the local
Coffee purveyor.
Chocolate for a weary soul.
All an excuse to vent
And talk to each other
Away from the eavesdropping
In a more private place.

The routine is established
The invitees can change but
Are usually the same duo.
Those few moments become more
Important than
The eight plus hours
In a cubicle
In front of a computer.

So true--those few moments' break time with your co-worker(s) do become the essence of the day.
