Coffee Shop Affair

I'm late
You don't see
I sneak to the back
How appropriate

Inching
I come closer
Oh
She smiles
Jealous I bow
Shuffle my feet
You expected me
Right?

Oh
She leaves
Beaming
Stretch onto my toes
Inching
Beside you now

Swooning
In a coffee shop
I smirk at your boldness
Oh
You smell so good
Dressed in green
You look like candy
My Mexican


This post was in response to Theme Thursday's prompt, Candy. Coffee is my candy and as of now, my favorite is the Mexican coffee at Red Whale. I have a green cozy made of fleece that a friend got me at the local Eco Store, but love the one for sale above as well.

  2. Just what I am enjoying right now, only it is not exotic. Very nicely done and a great way to advertise. I tell the local coffee merchant that you are a coffee snob and will definitely try his Costa Rica coffee when you visit.
