MORTAL COIL for Heathcote

The coffee house loop
that never ends
sounds heavenly
among the laptoppers.
Failure is not an option.
The fanfare of the horns
and the swell of the hi-hat
roll on like spooky dreams.
Fingers dance —
they fly like bats in a cave.
The gods if there are any
shall protect us
until it’s closing time.
And then we’ll rattle off.
