A Cup of Coffee For Me
Just one more cup...that's all I'm asking...my head hurts...the room is fading in and out...I can't believe three cups haven't done the trick,
Maybe it's because of the lighting...you know for my eyesight straining...it can't possibly be the blood vessels constricting,
The joys of life...oh how it's so much better with a cup of coffee...you know the birds sing faster...louder...emotionally scattered,
This coffee might be getting to me...the formalities of it all...cup in hand...iPad in the other...zine reading for heavens sake.
Is it the day in and day out pace that I carry daily...sugar in first...sometimes one scoop others maybe two,
The drops of splashing creamer that makes its home in the bottom of the pottery cup...you know the modern ones we drink from everyday,
Then comes the mixture...black depths of strained grinds from the columbian hills...gunfights daily for my mix,
Purpose and determined retrieval of my most beloved concoction...is there cause for applause...I think not my friend.
The many countries that make their livings fighting over the beloved beans...skewered existence of boney deportations,
How many lives must be lost for my single cup...make that two then three...the required amount to ease my mental tone of aspirations,
Do the resorts along the coast help to deliver the barges of beans through the Gulf of Mexico...
Customs allowing every ounce of the bean through...it doesn't matter...the coffee calls to me...black glob in my lottery cup.
The fortified walls of nervous breakdowns that occur every day among every citizen of all countries abound,
Has everyone forgotten the concept of sleep...the turntable events that light up the night sky...the morning like bears chasing their prey,
But as soon as the liquid enters my body...the mass confusion ends on the flip of a dime...variables uniting around the block,
The seats are pushed in...the table is made...the world seems a lot calmer now...thank you columbian mayhem...devils drink of choice...coffee.
