Connections : inside Europe

Long after dawn the day begins
at the murmurings of breakfast:
along the terraced enclave
wrapped in rising warmth
or inside the aircon’s drily
starched aesthetic, where

family broods enjoy a full bourgeois,
disdainful lapdog couples preen
and young flirtatious visitors are flattered
by circling earnest casual staff,
servicing cold buffet food
with warm juice and coffee, while

polite encounters assuage
the meagre company of strangers
with connections found in social settings
or missed among the lattices of comforts
hosting the eccentric, the engaging,
the observant – and the guests.
