Turkish Coffee at Ahmad’s Persian Cuisine

Ahmad'sby Steve Kline

Brave coffee, this, and sweet enough

to bear me bravely through the afternoon, so I say

to Ahmad who delighted tells me

he somehow witches the brew, his process

an irresistible combination

of old John Wayne West and

Iranian water rite. I thirst

for Ahmad’s coffee through

the entire 20-block hike it takes

to get here, and before that

a lifetime, for starters.
