I stray into a church cafe
trying to find Wifi.
This is much more likely
than that cheap diner
or the pub I just wandered into.
A lady holds the door open for me.
Two patrons look up from tables and smile.
The member of staff comes round the counter
with a blessing on her face.
I slow down
wonder whether I’d actually be able to grab a coffee anonymously here
open my laptop in the corner
and just type
I start to reverse
‘hello, how are are you?’
‘do you have wifi? ’I say
‘Never mind then’
Out I go. No one opens the door for me this time.
Sorry. Not looking for that kind of connection right now
