At the Strip Mall

There is a fireplace at Panera Bread
suggesting a ski chalet
snow whipping out picture windows
sipping whiskey-infused toddies
Maybe that’s why writers come here
with their Moleskines and laptops
parking lot out plate glass windows
sipping coffee after coffee
checking their Facebook
for photos of friends on ski vacations

Time for the Tuesday Platform in the Imaginary Garden
