Robot Cafe

The blind man could not believe
In the reality of time travel
Despite frequent hops to
The Robot Café with Rabbit
For lunch or a late breakfast
Big Band music on the radio
Frequently interrupted
By war updates
Steak and Eggs mingling
With reports of fascism
Sweet cola sparkled with
The thick blood of patriots
So many artificial beings
From the future
With their chattering disk drives
And whirring servo motors
Made it impossible to
Fully appreciate 1940’s America
Despite the free refills
For his coffee
It was for him
A Sound Deception
