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.
