Umbria

Sunday espresso /   my enjoyment dependent /   amount of sugar

Sunday espresso
my enjoyment dependent
amount of sugar
Fortune in my cup / drowsy creativity / a long night ahead

Fortune in my cup
drowsy creativity
a long night ahead
add sugar — forget / add sugar another time /   not enough sugar

add sugar — forget
add sugar another time
not enough sugar

Coffee and Tie

enchilada lunch
my tie remains unblemished
life’s simple triumphs

coffee looks so good
but I so hate the flavor
first sip reminder

Church

stained glass window

the morning service
I need coffee to function
only faith is offered

a church organ with very large pipes

speeches and sermons
uplifting and meaningful
no one ever claps

pain of gassing up—
solace for ninety-nine cents
gas station coffee

bags under my eyes
nobody seems to notice—
but I notice theirs

Baraka

a Tarkatan grunt
mostly unremarkable—
peculiar name

No Tea

miserable cup
yesterday’s coffee lingers
a tea-less office

A Working Man

french vanilla cream
makes coffee tolerable—
but not my stomach

pink on pink action
aggressive shirt tie combo
summer is coming

Multiple Beats

Terrible morning
to aid my decompression
some bitter coffee
