Unpleasant coffee
enough cream and sugar
mildly unpleasant

cold fingers welcome
what my lips dare not approach
steaming profusely

cold, dark and bitter
I can only force so much
day three—no sugar

Tea Time

tea after coffee
sugar never added
just now I notice

Lunch Time

lunchtime discussion
four drinks on the table
slowly get empty

three computer screens
eyes alternate between them
all of them Facebook

Unnecessary Stress

the morning stresses
blocked out by my headphones
favicon design


Phone keys or wallet
one of three always missing
after I get dressed

Vacation’s Over

steeping my tea bag
on top of the microwave
bananas ripen

The Holidays

room floor tiles 
unremarkable pattern? 
subtly complex

Connection Issues

Large photoshop file
Hours of unsaved progress
connection failure

milk chocolate bar
while i wait for Internet
disappears slowly

Christmas is Coming

four-thirty sunset
seven-thirty sunrise
eternal darkness

Three cups of coffee
my sleepiness still prevails
I prepare a fourth

Four cups of coffee
my sleepiness still prevails
now a stomach ache

business casual
looking fly in my silk tie
but where is my belt?

Ediety knot
holy grail of necktie knots
practice makes perfect
