Peaceful morning, quiet space
Enrique can take my breath away
Cup of hot coffee, brownie with ice
Aromatic sounds to acoustic vibes
Steep me here in timelessness
Brewed companionship a must
Musical fidelity by grace, and
Elvis saves the best for last.
Serendipity falls on a
Rainy day, when I found him
Secluded, quite hidden away
I don’t think we’ve met
No, we haven’t – yet
So I stayed and discovered
Him, of exceptional taste
When we parted I prayed
We would meet again with haste.
Where intensity meets
Smoothness; kick in with your
Sweet strength, loaded.
We walked back to the car, him armed with provisions from the convenience store, me with two bottles of iced coffee.
We opened the car doors and scrambled in; it was freezing.
He took a swig from his bottle of iced tea, then turned and offered it to me.
“Nah weather’s too cold. I need hot tea.”
“Alrighty,” he said.
He took another swig, keeping the fluid in his mouth this time. Suddenly, he swiftly turned and leaned towards me while I gasped and pushed him away, him laughing at my glare.
Ignoring him I opened my bottle, then tilted it at my mouth and felt the cold brew gushing down my throat. Much needed fuel for the caffeine addict.
“Do you want some?” I offered.
“Sure, but I want it hot,” he grinned.
“How hot do you want it?”
“As hot as you.”
Darkly he steeps
Smoky and pungent, with
A hint of fruitiness in his
Lingering after-kiss –
Quietly intense, my
Robust and full-bodied
Creamy yet strong
Hit me up this afternoon
With your sweet sweet spot.
He loved coffee.
He wanted coffee.
She made them some coffee.
He said it’s too much, that coffee.
It scalded him, that coffee.
Doesn’t rejuvenate anymore, that coffee.
What good is non-rejuvenating coffee?
They had different preferences for coffee.
She stared at the cup of coffee.
Slowly turning cold, that coffee.
She tried to warm that coffee.
She wanted to scream, sometimes, at that coffee.
Still she never upsetted the coffee.
So it sits on the table, that coffee.
A single shot of a coffee.
Make it a double next time sweetie –
One more for the heart.
