April Poem-A-Day Challenge  Day 17

prompt: an express poem

The coffee in Perth
costs more and
tastes worse
than in Melbourne.
Even the coffee
served with breakfast
on our Qantas flight
tastes better.

The people of Perth
clearly express
themselves more
artistically in other
media. Each day
I pass the park
backpackers use
as a living room,
watching news
and concerts
on a massive screen.

While in the cafe
diagonally opposite
the ceiling is art
the coffee
bitter, bankrupt.
