For The Love Of My Yerba Mate Soul

For The Love Of My Yerba Mate Soul
   
“Hey, the bagel needs cream cheese.”    
“Since you are one of our VIPs, I’ll replace it.”    
“Sorry, but this hasn’t happened before.”    
“I believe trust is the key to any relationship.    
Whether that be to a patron or a lover.”    
“Seldom does a Barista put me alongside a lover.”    
“Well, it is exceedingly rare for me as well.”    
“I imagine I run into old classmates all the time.    
But they would rather not be recognized by me.”    
“Do you remember the fragrance    
of Bougainvillea and fruity leaved bananas?”    
“Is that the source of this place’s beans?”    
“Ok, there are two elements necessary    
to jog your memory, one is my presence,    
The other is teatime from south of the equator,    
These must occur simultaneously. Drink.”    
“Strange memory: Yerba mate was born unto our    
earth as the moon’s offering, whose savior was a    
kind Guarani hunter that protected it from being    
the jaguar’s feast, get me to a sanitarium.”    
“The only committal you need is to me.”
