Welcome to your Monday Mocha Break! Poor Amy’s computer is not doing well, so you’ll be hearing a lot from me this week.
I am spending MY Monday Mocha Break at Bica Coffeehouse in Oakland, where my awesome friend Bryn is a barista, and there is a frequent gathering of poets. (If you are in the Rockridge area, you should totally check it out. The coffee is to die for). One of the best things about Bica is that Bryn and the other baristas play the most random, awesome bizarre non-coffee shop typical music. Today, we’re into 90’s pop punk, so this is what we’ve been rocking out to, while reading Kora in Hell by William Carlos Williams. Make yourself some coffee, grab a book of poetry, and enjoy your little taste of poet life!
