The Café and Bistro Blend. In Numbers.


Take one surreal venue.

Add a second dimension.

Thrice blink.

Wait FOR a moment, and then see yourself in these familiar and friendly surroundings.

Wait a maximum of five minutes.

Then enjoy your meal/drink/stay/entertainment at the Six Sentence Café & Bistro.

This is another poetic entry for the SSC&B Poetry Slam. The prompt word is ‘second’

    Mate…this one just begs some music over it…some Jailhouse/SSC&B Rock!
    Yo, Ford, Denise, Clark …let’s give the man a beat to slam poetry the heck out of it!🎸🥁

      Just as long as I don’t have to compose the music, Nick. I’m better at that than I’ve ever been, but I’m not there yet! 🤣

      Nick, the skins of my congitas are already warming to the ambience of the room and Tom’s heady blend which he has masterfully crafted!

    I am glad there was a maximum time set on how long one should wait.

      Pleased that I do, Sue. Those journeys in our minds are just as important as those in our day to day lives, I feel! 🙂

    It gets super scary after these six lines because seven ate nine.

    You nailed it, Tom. Your Mansionic beat has the echo to travel seas and land, its report telling of the mysteries and joys of the SSC&B!

      It should be heard in all four corners of the Earth, Ford. I’m not exactly sure where the four corners are, but I’m certain the myths and legends of the SSC&B will reach there! 🙂
