Colectivo Coffee Roasters and Cafe

27 Oct

Colectivo on Monroe Street in Madison, Wisconsin, is one of my favorite places to get coffee. When an employee made me a caffeine drink (I can’t remember what he made me!), it looked like this and I almost wept from the beauty of it:

Ok, so YOU have received drinks like the endless times before—I haven’t! This was my first time!

While sitting-in-the-cafe-writing-Haiku (ewww?), I ate a delicious breakfast burrito:

This is my son at Colectivo, who, in case you were wondering, could care less about my blog.

What I also like about this Colectivo is how it’s decorated. It’s cozy. There are all kinds of chairs, couches, tables and a fireplace. The glass walls slide open. It’s very pleasant. I know I like it because it reminds me of a loft I’d like to live in.

I am also, unfortunately, obsessed with the bathrooms. I love the design of the communal sinks and paper towel holder.

Horizontal Stripes Haiku

4 Sep

38270r

You called me “Kim”—not

my name. Lobby lights off.

Indicative of job.

You wore a horizontal-striped

sleeveless dress. Flip flops.

Professional!

You said you would call

my recruiter by Friday—

but you did not call.

I emailed recruiter.

“We have not heard from them.”

Took a nap. Answer:

“We found a better

match.” No other feedback.

Indicative of job.

*******

This five paragraph Haiku is about a job interview that I had. So annoying and insulting!

Are five paragraph Haikus allowed?

Quit job. Left mirror.

Two months later my boss mailed

it. Broken like job.
