What do you gain from me...?...
A voice of wildernesses past,
angst and beauty of a dreamlike
caste embossed with poetry...
When you reply your eyes incline
in crinkled wry and whimsical
sincerity; ...coffee, the capacity
to make damn good coffee...
The irony is palpable and grieves
me not, in truth your need is
what leads and comforts me
– cafe latte s’il vous plait!
