When bitter can mean please

When bitter can mean please…

the handle of the cup holding a coffee with a fern like design in its froth, is like her nose, and both are porcelain.

And when I order something bitter I remember your German, and how you kissed the word Bitte that held the meaning of please, and other meanings.

passing time

It all started with a coffee, no hold that thought, we haven’t got there yet. You came over and said your first Bitte, “May I help you?” I started with cappuccino.

The second Bitte was when you brought over the coffee saying ‘Here you go”.

There were many occasions that asked for Bitte, after all I was working on a novel, I was going to be here for some time. Now I wanted my own Bitte which meant “Can you help me please?” The request was for research purposes, and I have no idea how I ended up in another German city. Another barista was going to say Bitte, all over again.
