Teaspoonful


Twinning
Times are
Brimming.
Coffee sinks.
I drown.

Married
The man
Sitting
On the
Next table.

One
Coffee bean
Heartbeat
Fallen to
The ground.

Played
Two truths
And
A lie
With Spoon.

Cups,
Foamy innards
And
The scent
Of mouths.

Pictures
Hang on
The wall.
They don't
Like the floor.

Behind
The counter,
Something
Boils. You
Don't know what.

Footsteps,
Step out
Of
Quincunxes of
Coffee- unfinished.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
