Coffee

Max Planchon, C’21

i can’t watch the news

it hurts more than it needs to

i turn and drop the coffee pot

i feel it burn my feet

i slip on glass and become part of the floor

hot coffee seeping

into crevices

deeper than i knew were there

a grid made of mortar holds me together

sopping wet like the mop

not fine enough

enough to seep

into each crevice

and pull

the coffee from me
