Bed of Light

Image result for sitting on cliff abstract painting

i take
caffeine only

in an IV, tapped
straight from
a maple..

otherwise i prefer
anabolic tea
cause..

it keeps me
up and

grittin’ teeth
through
heavy
lifts,

guess i’ll grab
my jar of
water
life

and go climb
out on a
cliff..

for a scream
of echoes
while

i sob a prayer
for sleep
tight-

for pity
in your light.

Quitter’s Cup

it’s time to pour
a cupful of
anxiety,

tired from the fleeting
buzz i catch off
flavoured
coffees,

i’ll brew 2 bags,
3 bags, 4 bags
..more?

let’s up, up
the anti!

dial up to max
intensity!

maybe just a
little sip?

it does the job
but tastes
like..

..i quit.

Too Latte

nutmeg nibbling
at nervous
nose,

spicy soft with a
mellow waft
of steam,

itchy cheeks,
sweaty creaks
sunk in
seat,

10 slow ticks past
confirmed time
of meet,

ohh..

right shop
wrong street.
