Jagged Thought #137: Coffee Cup Wasteland


 

In the trenches
I contemplate my day.

Sip.
And think.

Sip
And think.

Sip
And write.

This world is stunning.

Sip
And write.

The news.
It’s all bad.


But my coffee is great.

Sip.
And think.

Sip
And think.

I look at the surface
of my ceramic cup.

“Welcome to Las Vegas”

Sip
Drink.
Sip
Drink.

This world is a wasteland
I think to myself.

I take a sip,
And scratch that.

Without coffee, I add.
