Central market…

Central market
dark-roasted Ethiopian brew
fills my recycled
paper cup

I walk and inhale
the scent of organic humus
beneath the brick floor
now rising up as
leafy green celery
pungent horseradish
and apple butter

I take a sip and
amidst the market bustle
am grounded in the earth
from which I came
to which I will
return
