java jive…

java five

child
put
as much
sugar
and
cream
in your coffee 
as
you like
cuz
it’s
gonna be
the only
time
you’re gonna
get
that bitter taste
of
life
out of
your mouth
so
like everyone else
enjoy
that break
from
reality
hell
why not
have
two cups
this morning

 

 

strange brew…

most days
i much prefer
to have my coffee
alone
but seeing
all the seats were taken
i could hardly say no
to the stranger
i thought to myself
he looks like
death warmed over
he said
thank you
but did i say that aloud
he said
no
as i stared into his eyes
i could see a thousand souls
he abruptly left
but left behind a package
i followed him
and ended up
in a small graveyard
i saw an open grave
its headstone
had no date
but the inscription read
live not
the lives of others
but your own
as i stared into the grave
i saw
a mirror
