Amanda S.:
Bitter black tar drink,
I wish we'd never met—but
yes, I'll have a cup.

Leslie:
It's just not working;
your dark brews, the sleepless nights.
It's not you—it's tea.

Three Haikus on Coffee

Sips of morning's joe
Eyes open and drinking in
Marmelade-hued dawn.

Day ahead, what now?
Coffee, please, steaming, hot, strong.
Wake up, world, new day!

White and blue striped cup
Black liquid, foaming white peaks
Sips of simple joy

my heart beats faster
i'm short of breath - is it love?
or is it caffeine
