The black drip to my drop
Fills my green cup.
5 am is brew time where I’m from.
Caffeine consumes my eyelids
As they pop open to the morning.
A day without you
Is like time without tock.
I love the calorie-less liquid
As it warms my mind.
A drug? Yes! A drug to make
Life a little bitter-sweet and better.
Since I started teaching, my coffee consumption has doubled.
So this Saturday I’m celebrating coffee! Yay for staying awake during the day! Check out Ruth Ayres Writes and link your own celebrations.
I used to be content with one hot cup in the morning, but that was when my day started at 7 am. Now with my commute to school, coffee sounds goot at 5 am, 6 am, 7 am, 8 am, 9 am.
When I last say the dentist, the hygienist said, “Ah, a bit of a coffee drinker, huh.” It wasn’t a question. The evidence was on my teeth. Despite the slight stains, I still like coffee. And in my defense, it’s the only caffeine I drink.
So cheers to that black drink! Have a cup and think of me.
