2013 GUESTBOOK 103: “Coffee” (by Stuart Vance & Kevin Keelan)


Go ahead!

look deep into your own reflection

on the black surface

of your espresso.

(“Oh God, it’s good!”)


being penniless and creative

didn’t turn out

to be as romantic as we thought it would…

(“Well- almost…”)

The brew is good today,

but there’s a frog in me.

He feels like peanut butter!

(Afghanistan is in my coffee,

I can see the Soviet soldiers

with their burly eyebrows aflutter

playing canasta

on dusty highways

the sun

burning their ears…)


it’s only coffee.
