Eggs in a bowl. Broken yolks salted.
Black beans ground, scooped into
cone filter. Left to brew.
A man at the kitchen table.
Newspaper opened to page three.
He mouths the story, how a gunman
robbed a pizza delivery boy
while wearing a gorilla mask
and oversized tennis shoes.
The mans wife hands him a banana.
She watches him peel it,
not with two fingers,
which is customary,
but with his whole hand
the way an ape might do.
