University Life Café

coffee cup with a frowning face and steam rising from the cup

Espresso Steam
My mornings taste sinfully bitter--  
as they should.  
Sunlight gleams from the devil's teeth.  
A dark ring of energy   
lines the bottom of my cracked mug.  
The pot dotted with steam   
and empty.
