Don’t fill up
Because the grinds are too simple–
in your stomach– they
rub your intestines like
sandpaper. Coffee is straightforward
like your grandmother’s humor.
Instead, break the fast
with orange juice– something sweet
Start your morning with
hydrate your soul
with sympathy and jealousy,
be an enigma, a twist, be a mystery
because the one who takes the time to solve you
will be the one who always sits beside you at
the breakfast table.
