The Best Dishwasher the Globe Ever Had!
We have whole bean coffee for sale, and we just got in some new fair trade organic Yirgacheffe (Ethiopian). We also have a new espresso that is getting rave reviews–the Mistral Espresso Blend. All of our coffees are roasted locally, and of course we can grind it up for you. Thanks!

There is no end to you
Red swallows up our hearts
White wraps our eyes
Gold drapes your tongue.
We fall into circuses
Camped in the temple
Poets juggle fire and
The fools, they tame the tigers.
Your head is in the yawning
Lion, whispering him a
secret and he whispers back.
We are high-wire sliding candles.
There is no end to you
And the mulleins call brings
The Buddha, silk bags full
Of rocks saved from your shoes.
The sea sweeps you away
And a parade saunters in to swim
To follow the light the sun
The too full moon, the flower.
There is no end to you.
Stazja Has Sent Us a Poem
Ida Lupino Deserves An Explanation
When I plugged the sink
that flooded Uncle Louie’s bathroom,
was further from my mind
than Ida Lupino,
whose strange name
made a young girl’s tongue
dance in the saying.
And then there was the leaky faucet
in Uncle Louie’s bathroom sink.
If you thought that saving water was my motivation,
you’d be mistaken.
In my state of contemplating Ida Lupino,
I could not bear to lose
a single perfect pearly droplet of beauty
down the drain.
And What about That Plaid???

The Globe on TV (and this means U!)
We are on TV as part of Strange Theater on cable TV. It is the show about Pirate Radio 99x, and the fundraiser we had for them. You can catch it on Knology Public Access Channel 21 and Bright House 96. It’s on Saturdays at 10-10:30 PM, Mondays at 7-7:30 PM, and Thursdays at Midnight-12:30 AM (really Wed nite!). All will run until the end of October, according to Sue Edwards, the director.
Also, we were featured on NBC’s The Spot but the show was cut short for the Notre Dame/Michigan game. It may air again(and again and again) but I don’t know…

A Public Service Announcement for Downtown’s It Crowd
Harken hipsters and hepcats:
Get thee hence to the Globe
A motley gathering therein
Dig the punks and Goths
Armchair intellectuals arguing for their hubris
The grave silent bent over their chess
Witness the old pervs (witness all)
Digging the young stuff
Hip artistical types making the scene
The place to be seen, see?
Squares too, welcome in their sad corners
With pathetic unhip-type conversations of nothing
The DJ spinning something gone.
Gone, but not distracting,
Nay, nor forgotten neither
(How can one forget what one has never been hepped to?)
The beat makes all bearable (as even the studious will attest).
Here the starving scenesters gather
To swig java, socialize and scarf.
?Where have you been, man??
Upon the walls the St. Pete scene has bled inward
Infecting the already swank setting
(Throwback 1950s hip)
With the (necessary) stain of the Modern.
O Globe! How many maladjusts, lonelies,
Rebels, radicals and scholars have incubated
At your tables?
How many hungry, horny-hot hepcats have found solace
Encapsulated in your caffeinated womb?
Where would our scene be without your late night refuge
