The bookstore is cold and dark.
I turn on the lights.
Stacks of bookcases stand tall.
I open the curtains.
The Florida sun flows in.
Couches and chairs would be
perfect between the corner windows.
A counter with stools by the front door,
where customers could enjoy my coffee and pastries.
Yes, it is all coming alive to me.
A perfect bookstore/ coffee shop.
I could see a peaceful future for me
in the seaside town of Oasis.
Little did I know of the otherworldly plans
taking place at the same time as mine.
And these plans are in no way as
peaceful and innocent as mine.
