Coffee Sonnet

coffee

a good cup of coffee
needs fourteen shots

Italian or Patrician

iambic beats in the froth
from chrome and steam

ground poetic beans

expresso for a coming rhyme
flower in the lather

counting silent seconds

and paint a chocolate
with ingredients

measure with your eye

make it strong but
not a test or for the chime
