“Did you pour water?”
As gasping sounds emerge from the coffee maker…


“Why wouldn’t I?”
a quick check of the machine anyway…


Reveals a coffee-maker filled with coffee.


But not water.


“Fool of a man! Less poetry, more coffee-making!”
As a hastily-added caraf of water pours into a thirsty machine!


WordPress alert …
occupational hazzards
of a poet

  1. You had me at coffee.. but now I am laughing clearly and loudly! Such priorities – how does one choose?! The best part of this is how it makes me feel so much the better about myself.Not alone; not alone. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your unconventionality!
