“Escape on Saturdays” by Ayesha F. Hamid

Saturday’s ritual, discourse and diners,
talking while walking to our
regular place, The Green Kitchen.

Exiting the pressure cooker,
worries are left at the door.

Havoc halts as we talk, laugh, breathe.

Forgetting brimming calendars,
it’s solace, just you and me,
fresh silverware, an easy cup of coffee.
