In The Coffeeshop

a red fire extinguisher hangs under a red picture of a fire extinguisher.
a poster shows how to choke, how to unchoke.
a man in a hat enters the room, fills his mug, takes a sip, smiles.
looking around the room, nothing is on fire;
no one is choking.
he takes another sip and steps back out into the world.
