What's To Miss?

Change confuses everyone.
Even the guy at the coffee shop
Is bewildered
When your usual becomes
One cappuccino instead of two.
To him, he is just another cup of coffee.
Another sale.
If you think about it that way,
It seems better
Because all you’re losing
Is another warm cup in your hand
On a bitter cold winter day.
What’s to miss, really?
Spilling coffee all over yourself
Every time you went to open
The car door with your hands full?
If you think about change like that,
It really isn’t that confusing.
You are just changing your usual.
It will take a few weeks
Before the guy at the coffee shop
Will stop asking you
How many cappuccinos you want.
