In seventeen beats.

i love you so so
so so so so so so so
so so so so much


This is my order:
Any drink that doesn't taste
Like coffee at all.

I used to work at Food52. I'm probably the person who picked all of the cookie dough out of the cookie dough ice cream.

My dull sleepy mind
Pour over grounds smell aroma
First sip- instant jolt!
Charles C. October 6, 2014
Friday afternoon
We sip the fresh brewed coffee
And dream of escape.
MandiFran September 28, 2014
We like the brew cool
With ice cubes in a "go cup"
That's how NOLA rolls
David September 28, 2014
My life in a fog
Right hand grabs a heavy mug
Dark roast rouses me
Meghan September 27, 2014
The usual please;
medium cafe au lait
to get through my day.

Coffee oh coffee
The first great morning taste
Strong and full flavored
You are a taste of home

Thank you, Whole Foods man
For suggesting the French Roast.
It has rocked my world.

A true companion
To clasped hands in fall's first rain
One café au lait

delicious coffee
nectar of the working class
Decaf? Not for me!
Sarah J. September 26, 2014
Why is there decaf?
In my opinion, that
Defeats the whole point.

even on hot days
I look forward to your smell
not true for all folks
Vivi B. September 26, 2014
The comfort and solitude
of the morning ritual.
The steaming mug.

i shouldn't drink you;
you make me so jittery,
but you smell so good.

double latte no
foam extra pumpkin syrup
make it a triple

i thought i told you
my name is renee but this
says, maybe, rainy?
Indira @. September 26, 2014
I can't live with you
Blood pressure and acid pain
But can't live without.

hubs brings me latte
milky heart resembles butt
still, i love and drink
Sarah J. September 26, 2014
This is almost too cute: "milky heart resembles butt"
Catherine L. September 26, 2014
A cappuccino
When I feel fancy. Sorry
wallet. Next time drip.
em-i-lis September 26, 2014
