Coffee

Wanting to remain asleep I
Kick off sheets and keep myself from dreams.
Coffee press on counter holds my high.
Joe’s aroma mingles piping steam,
Taking flight to kiss my nosebuds,
Helps remind me angels exist.
Hotness hits my fingertips and floods
Warmth around my tongue. I can’t resist
Licking foam atop the cup as bubbles
Pop. Like sea foam clings to rocks
After storms are calmed and waves double.
Sloshes lips and sends an unhappy shock.
In the instant taste returns I feed.
Verdict: strong, robust, embodied.
