Opaque, thick, hot

coffee

 

Here’s a poem I wrote a while ago which includes the word opaque. For those in the USA, Garrison Keillor read this one on “The Writer’s Almanac on December 9, 2016:

 

Strong Coffee

 

Strong coffee

smells like a current

of warm southerly air

in the climate of dawn.

Strong coffee

gets stronger

when poured back

through the grounds.

Opaque,

thick hot, bitter

for waking up,

the caffeine

pumps through your center,

stains your mouth with morning,

with going to work,

surprises you

with your own

breath.
