A Cup of Coffee

I lived today
Knowing that I
Inhaled the aroma of
A cup of coffee that was

Getting cold. You see,
A cup of coffee teaches
You patience. You must wait
Until it’s that perfect temperature
Of warm and cold. Lukewarm is
Too commonplace for coffee, no,
The feeling is to be experienced.
That one sip where the bitterness
Crescendos on the tongue, delivering a flavor equatable to
A punch to the jaw.
I like coffee like I like my punches:
Strong and direct. All the while,
The brain flutters, ecstatic for the
Injection of caffeine (ones truest love that will never betray but remain faithful).

A bold roast
In the right mug mixed with
Cloudy skies makes way for the
Perfect sip of excellence.
