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.
