Caffè  Florian: Intruder Alert

 

by

Jennifer Susannah Devore

 

Little Miss JennyPop, as most people know,

Longed to revisit 18thC. Venice; she was always ready to go.

 

So to Caffè Florian, the oldest in the world - 1720 - she did flock.

For this Italian adventure, naturally, she packed her most Verdi-inspired frock.

 

On a rainy, Veneto night, into Florian they fled,

Sipping famed Florian brandy and espresso, JennyPop and her belov-ed.

 

Taking in a glistening, empty, St. Mark's Square,

The two shared an Enlightenment moment, looking quite the pair.

 

When down plopped beside them, a policeman and his wife,

An L.A. County sheriff and his clangorous lass, instantly spoke, ad nauseam, all about their life.

 

Like a boom in the shot, a fly in the wine,

They guffawed and gamboled too loudly, far from sublime.

 

We got two babies back in Big Bear! Do you know it?

I sure do love my babies ... the wife hesitated a bit.

 

Buuuuut? JennyPop prompted.

It sure is nice to get away sometimes, she admitted. Isn't it?

 

Leave me alone. Please exit my reveries.

This is my time, my moment, to experience the Seventeen-Twenties.

 

I don't really like people, JennyPop awkwardly blurted.

Fortunately, to her more affable half, the convo quickly reverted.

 

If one day you see JennyPop, lost in historical daydreams,

in a museum, cathedral or historic caffè,

Feel free to chat with her, quietly, then, please, go away.
