(Coffee) Shop Talk

Welcome to the shop where I talk about things that go well with coffee, which is almost everything.

sunlight on a red wall filtered
through white gauze of dense-lived time
recall darkly
creep back warily to the moment when night burst its seams
small puncture not being enough release
only purge of every moment built
up to this boiling point, point of pressure
pressure of weight, thick
comfortable weight of despair poured out,
squeezed out,
thrown out baby and bath water all to the brink
and over
into unbearable free morning

light strikes deep
in the empty room there is nothing to dim the glare
