Busy Cafeteria

This is a cozy wicker basket,
made for resting businessmen.
Nearby, there is putting to be done;
that is, if one can set aside
their sense of absurdity.
Sun is allowed entry from above
and it makes things warmer here.
The trees that someone planted
are happy and content in tiled boxes
and laugh as the storms outside
fail to ruffle their leaves.
They are granted drink and cover
and return the gesture with clean air
that gets recycled by the hustle
and busy-bodied patrons.
The atmosphere is thicker here,
but only with the approach of transaction.
Those passing through, who aren't here
to clean, are here to push further.
With every success, a new venture,
undertaken in the name of progress -
but not before getting a bite to eat.
