The chairs


October 26th

    It has been a while since I last had a coffee in the chipped cup. Thanks to it I came to realize that the cup’s recurrent use rate among customers averages once per month.
    September went by and brief as it may be, I had no luck in the chipped cup draw. Day after day I held every cup’s tiny white handle, eagerly anticipating on the ceramic’s perimeter that familiar wound. The last time I had used it, someone’s lips had kissed it so caressingly in the morning that by the end of the day the cup was still wearing those indelible marks of affection. It’s not easy to wash off a kiss.
    Every now and then chance tears the café apart and the unmistakable voice of recklessly scattered shards all over the mosaic floor comes to us from behind the counter.
    I seriously suspect the coffee cup is no longer.
