'Lost' apparently

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


They don’t


‘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
