Day 13 April Poem-A-Day Challenge

prompt: a comparison poem

The public image is
efficient, brisk, youthful.
The drink machines
care not. According
to Mikaela, they make
mistakes: too much ice
or only one cube, two
cups of the same drink
on one drive-through
order, so the second one
is thrown away. 

She is good-humoured
about these annoying habits
of Maccas' mischievous
machines. She speaks
with high energy, and
vivacious hand movements.

I on the other hand
must turn such facts
of life into a quiet poem
and when I told her so
we laughed together.
