brewing words

i drink too much
coffee. see,

when i reach the
bottom of my cup
i’m supposed to
get up
and do something be

with all the

and it’s over
-cast today,
so all i want to

do is play

with all the fun

so i’m sitting here,
sippin’ and grippin’
my keys, unlocking
the sneeze of syllables
onto page.

are you stirred? let’s stay
awhile and pile ourselves
under black kern
-als of thought, tiny pieces
caught in craw, clacked
raw, just play with

all the fun:

some say that poems
are overrated. well,

at least i’m well


happy monday. happy writing.
let’s stay awhile longer, yes?

    the power of coffee – inspires you to find the words.

  8. Oh my word, I freaking LOVE this poem!!!

    “caught in craw, clacked
    raw, just play with”

    This, especially. I love the idea of playing a game of “With.” 😉

  11. Playing with words.. Love that one too.. and certainly caffeinated 🙂

  12. Susan says:

    What fun. I do think the words brew with the coffee. I’m thinking of trying to see what would happen if I didn’t caffeinate Someday.

  13. Sherry Marr says:

    I love this, De, especially sneezing the words onto the page!

    So my mom has always called a bra a “bray” for fun. So this time, when I read the title, I saw “Bray Wing,” which of course means “Bra Wing.” So now I’m picturing a dragon trying to put on a bra, working around those pesky wings. 😉 She’s really frustrated, by the way.

    Caffeine is more over rated then poems. Keep the words.

  16. Glad you played! And your poetry is definitely NOT overrated 🙂

    Ha! Funny how the caffeine and the poetry go together! 🙂

Use your words.
