Tall latte in a to-stay cup
you’re my favorite pick me up.
Creamy white froth
speckled with brown
rambunctious strangers
crowd all around
Too bad the rhyme fell apart.
From simple caffeine intake system,
into something more sophisticated,
you morph.
White china, or porcelain
I’m not really sure,
but either way, you are
pleasantly weighty in my hand.
Hot burns the roof of my mouth,
coffee scent assaults my nose,
I am enveloped in bliss.
