Coffee – one of my favorite things


Coffee – one of my favorite things

People close to me know all too well how much I like a nice freshly brewed Barako at any time of the day — yes, even right before bedtime. Going through my files, I unearthed this old piece I made:


steaming brew
whirl at my command
then sear my tongue
as if to spite
I don’t control you
I can only say how much
or how little
or what kind
how much sizzle
stir you
sip from your cup
and when you’re inside me
warmth turns to heat
until I get enough
then receding
until I am drowsy
