Coffee - Poem by Christian Rosselli


arriving home while the sky is painted red,
ever notice the lukewarm cup
standing alone?
a still black basin of richness
morning stains surround the blue rim
from your nervous hands hurrying
and off to work you go.
God Bless Coffee aromas from
all over
the world
the austrian meinl kaffe
dunkin donuts morning addiction
starbucks-ash or real bean?
or just Gimme! Coffee
For now I'm a hippie searching for the last smoke
wondering if I should let it rest
save the rejuvenation for tomorrow
or down my thurst quencher of the late pm

there it is...

should I?
