Thoughts While Waiting

I should be in Santa Fe,
not here on this sidewalk two blocks off the river
waiting for someone I don’t know
and probably don’t want to.

I should be in Half Moon Bay,
not here in this stifling air thick enough to choke on
waiting for a suit and tie
enslaved to paid-up premiums.

I should be – oh, far away!
Not here at this tarted-up café
waiting for a miracle
to fall upon my forehead.

But should is SHOULD
and is is IS
and that’s the plate life’s served me.

I’ll garnish it with fragrant herbs,
a slice of
real
and freshest fruits in season.

Devour it with delight I shall.
The shoulds – those sour scrapings –
can be tossed where they belong:
out onto the compost heap of learning.
