Two Hours in Old Breton

by Justine C. Tajonera

We met at a cafe,
exchanging stories
about books,
words like life
lines, stringing us

Different women, different
lives told in the language
of books owned, lent,
lost, borrowed
and bought.

We laugh as we say,
"But it's a book club!" in
retort to questions about
love and other sundries
of life,
knowing full well
how life
is inextricable with
the books
we read.

We savor our cups
of coffee,
listening, exclaiming,
over how we've
read the same
and different

For the Breton Book Club
started last Jan. 16, 2010 at Cafe Breton, Ortigas Center
