Coffee Buzz -- Poetry 2011
By the grace of coffee alone shall I....
jitter my way through the day
while my stomach gurgles solos
or should I consume solid victuals
to soak up the liquid stimulus.
Jolting my system to warp or gulping
steaming increments between bites
means a four pm reciprocating drop;
a droop only to be revived with a mocha
double shot latte and ginger snaps;
speeding beyond the setting sun to midnight,
I walk the Corgis under hesitant skies.
Still wired from caffeine consumption,
bed’s rumpled appearance confirms
extinguishing occasional coffee buzz.
