First Gulp

What is with coffee anyway?

Lovely, despicable brew,

the escaping vapors

filling the slumbering house

with buoyant aroma,

hot soaking grounds

bubbling up

and then down,

the glass carafe

holding the golden brown elixir,

then to my lips,

first gulp

a bitter, sweet jolt,

the effects immediate,

so early in the morning.

 

One cup with cream,

you lovely, despicable brew,

you.
