Recipe for Happiness in Khabarovsk or Anyplace by Lawrence Ferlinghetti

One grand boulevard with trees
with one grand café in sun
with strong black coffee in very small cups

One not necessarily very beautiful
man or woman who loves you

One fine day

Mev Puleo, Au Bon Pain, Harvard Square, Cambridge, spring 1991
