Coffee

Coffee

All I can think of is coffee

Kaffee, café, kohv, кофе

With milk, sometimes sugar

Sometimes cold (rarely),

Like mine black,

Nothing added.

 

Maybe a cigarette.

Always a cigarette.

And away goes the static.

 

/Crackling plastic, sifting grain, running water,

*click* and then sizzling, drop drop drop/

 

In the cup, steam rising

So damn warm,

Smooth roasted, no filter

And then!

 

Espresso, cappuccino, latte

Yes please

Just give me the caffeine

And a little time to think.
