Tall, Dark & Handsome


My coffeepot is my friend.
It's wonderful
In that he asks not
What I can give,
But lives
To give to me.
His tastes are my tastes.
His desire my desire,
To share a rich, steamy cup
Of liquid conversation,
Heavenly dispensation,
Which he has first tasted
For me.

My drip coffeemaker has a black housing, and also when the carafe is full it's dark too. Tall. Dark. Handsome. The best kind, lol. From my chapbook 'Sweet Aromas: A Book of Coffee Poetry.'
