grounds on the ground.

Standard

when the coffee falls

right as everything is ready

water boiled

waiting to be poured

about to brew 

soon to be sipped

it becomes precious

 so you laugh or cry or both.

“The coffee was never served. It boiled over, spattered them all,

and wet a costly tablecloth and the baroness’s dress.

But it served the end that was desired for it gave rise to many jests and merry peals of laughter.”

― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

confusion.

Standard

just curious 

why

when hurrying through a drive-through 

to grab a quick cup of coffee

at taco bell

(which should have given me pause in the first place)

 they handed me my coffee

then

a bag, a spork, and a little cup of thick crema.

maybe they’re too hipster for me

and I just don’t get it.

more fun than getting the surprise in a happy meal at mcdonalds

and more confusing.

“comedy comes from confusion.”
