    Enjoyed reading "Catching up"!

    Like someone wrote about, the deeper meanings of the poem are subtly dislocated to the marks of time and trivial (eating) action.

    Two persons meet for a coffee ( the waiting person is probably a woman) to see what remained of a once more close
    The time of both doesn´t quite match. The food matches better.
    But the meeting seems to be limited to that coffee and by that place:

    "I sip and listen to vicarious adventures,
    occasionally contributing a memory
    of somewhere we've both been,
    and then our cups are empty."

    At the end, when both watch the place preparing to close, there is a feeling of something wanting in the air. The time of the meeting is running out.
    "I seemed to have sensed also from an early age that some of my experiences as a reader would change me more as a person than would many an event in the world where I sat and read. "
    Gerald Murnane, Tamarisk Row
