Whipped Cream
EdwardDurden

I have watched the changing of the guard for repeated days now
 1
And they still ask me if I want whipped cream.
 2
Nothing is the flavor of the month any longer.
 3
No longer are they employees of a higher service in my eyes
 4
But rather providers of benevolent goods known only as
 5
Baristas.
 6
I am a Starbucks junkie.
 7
 
They no longer blurt out “Have a nice day”
 8
But rather tell me that tomorrow they will see me again.
 9
The friendly smiles given to customers is no longer mine
 10
For I am no longer just a customer,
 11
But a regular.
 12
 
I am like Sam,
 13
Commenting on people’s selections
 14
And organizing sugar packets and bulletin fliers on my way out.
 15
 
I am a Starbucks junkie.
 16
Light whipped cream and extra caramel.
