My Lover, As Coffee

My Lover, As Coffee


Espresso eyes:

caffeinated and

intensely rich.


No creamer

for this java.


I drink it bitter,

straight, from

a dirty shot glass.


Daylight awaits us,

a set of fangs

at the end of

sleep’s tunnel–


but at least I am

wide awake,

ready for another

cup of you.
