2021 Poetry Marathon, Hour 2

I stuck with the text prompt for Hour 2. 

Coffee and change

Used to be a bit of spare change
might buy a cup of coffee or two
(with enough left over to leave a tip on the counter)

Just enough to wake you up
on a slow morning

Seems hardly anyone
drinks straight coffee anymore

Now it’s mostly liquid dessert
in tall, grande, or venti

Just enough to wind you up
for the next sugar crash

And there’s no such thing as change
