How To Make Perfect Instant Coffee

Rating: 4.0
First, you need a cup of hot water
They say it should be hot as hell
I don’t know, I haven’t been there
Let me just say it should be scalding hot
Like the burning desire of a surfer
To ride the perfect wave
Like the all consuming passion
Of a figure skater to do the triple jump
Then you add half teaspoon of coffee
The kind that releases an exotic aroma
When dissolved in hot water

This was fun reading like jumping through hoops. I like all the vivid examples you supply. You must have had lots of fun growing up. And then all the choices. Do we really realize how many are involved in just the preparation of this one activity? Maybe that is why it is so satisfying. Reading your previous poem about freedom, I must ask, Are these acts of freedom or a kind of enslavement? The way some people talk, they don't 'rise' until after that first cup of coffee.

I enjoyed reading this, your choice of comparisons and the way you intertwine them with your directions. Also your sense of humor helps enliven your presentation.

The first person who used those little brown beans to make a drink deserves a giant award! Nectar of the gods? All I need is my coffee! (And I love it iced even better than hot.) Thanks for inviting us over for coffee, by way of your poetic pen!
