Poem: pick me up

coffee is unsurprisingly beautiful
its rich taste and aroma
filling my head with exquisite wakefulness
quickening and warming my heart and hand

o generous lover
nudging me out of bed each morning
for longing to get to you
dancing melodically on my tongue
tingling my nervous system
your grind motivates me to
get up and greet the sun
clear-eyed and ready

loving caffeinated cup
promise you will always be there
waiting for me at the cafe up the street
sweet and strong
you lift me, make me believe i can
make it through any day
and my tomorrows
will always start with you
