[POEM] it’s sunny today, too

if i lived on my own, I would have to buy a coffee maker
and a milk frother
and raw brown sugar
and iced tea spoons

that would be just the most immediate need
of solo living

in the mornings when i walk downstairs
i mutter “coffee” with each step
with half closed eyes my routine begins:

pick a mug (always handmade)
fill with a little milk or, if i’m lucky, half-and-half
microwave for 30 seconds
froth milk with my fancy frother thingie
pour in coffee
(the excitement builds)
a couple scoops of raw sugar
(scooped by a wooden spoon from Africa)
stir with my long-handled iced tea spoon
and finally… sip.

sometimes i imagine these routines in another context
and sometimes i don’t ever want to
