Riverside, California

Evening coffee house
Back to The Grind
Surrounded by chess men
Clocks and time
Tick tock
Rooks and knights
Socio economics
Nowhere in sight
Unity in the café
Old streets
Spanish mission
People from holy rollers
To no religion
Santa Cruz Inn
1920’s era sleeping
Rounded archways
Tiled roofs and crooked ceilings
The open balcony
Reveals a pleasant city
With just enough nice
Mixed equally with the gritty
It’s not urban but it’s edgy
A suburban switchblade
Sharp and sexy
There’s ocean air
Without the salty bouquet
Whiskey not wine country
It ain’t SD or LA
