To the Barista who Called me a Hero.

Nervous, I was
walking into a new coffee shop.

I got lost coming here
driving in circles hoping to find my new hangout spot.

Rustic and crowded
a good sign.

I don’t see a menu board
which makes me hesitant.

I get to the counter
struggling and shuddering,
to decide what I want.

When the barista tells me I am killing it,
He says,
Today you are a hero.
