Well, I stumbled on this one and just could not resist reading (as I sip my own brew of java). Wonderful!!!! Great rhythm and totally made me giggle. Could this be made into a song I could hum tunelessly while pouring my fifth cup??? Just fantastic.
Excellent poem, spoken by a true coffee lover, although I prefer decaf for reasons so beautifully illustrated in your poem. I love the way you circled the end back to the beginning...coffee is part of the circle of life!
I loved it! This is SO me! Right down to the stained coffee cup by the sink, except mine's a pretty Starbucks one I got on my honeymoon in Hawaii, so it doesn't fit the ugly description. hehe I can totaly relate to this, right down to having a hard time sleeping and starting the cycle all over again the next day, hoping for different results. Great poem. Thanks for taking the coffee challenge! Now where's my coffee cup...?
