White Chocolate Mocha

Flavoured coffee and cigarettes, enjoyed solitarily

in an overpriced coffee shop in a mall.

Laptops, tablets and androids on tables.

A pair of women in denim short-shorts paraded by.

Surreptitious glances thrown on the guys over at the next table.

A pregnant lady in short dress toted shopping bags.

Two children trailed behind with the nanny.

A towering foreign male strutted past.

A Filipina, half his height, wrapped on his arm.

A pair of giggly teenagers in uniform, from the nearby public school,

sipped on ventis worth more than their parents’ daily wage.

A trio of street urchins sidled between tables.

Begging and hoping for the last sip, the last nibble.

Two blissful hours spent doing absolutely nothing.
