A morning coffee with words
But alone, the silence was unheard.
In this wanton world space rules
To divide out its precious jewels.
The black subtle grace steams coy
It seduces the senses and brings joy
Yet the brain selects another chapter
A time filled with laughter.
The index finger and thumb
The cup and hand as one become
Yet words dissolve in the mouth
And now a love gone south
Caffeine alerts the judicious self
Anxiety is injected into cells
And to this gypsy’s chagrin.
The chapter is closed once again
