After the boil you wait. Then you pour.
Then you wait again. Three minutes.
And then you press down.
Each morning, I serve myself
a cup of coffee. I smile for my master
who is so free, almost like me
We both saw a full moon last night
and she turned us into a long shadow
so beautiful that I wanted
to dance for it
My master told me: No.
But I danced. Slowly.
It felt like coffee.
