Èlixir (#9)

Dark and rich
My lover
Black as ink
Life-giving
Like Water and Air

Perfect balance of
Earthy, roasted seed and cream
Sugar and cinnamon, a pinch
Vanilla softens bitter edges

Too hot to consume quickly
Savoring, a lost art
Swallowed up in the immediacy of
The daily grind

Sweet and spicy, como yo
There is only one nectar
One God

But it tastes like liquid magic
