Montville Coffee


after a Montville coffee – no, not
home grown, read the small print,
chocolaty highlights describing a full
flavoured award winning cafe favourite;
the blend includes beans from PNG,
Nicaragua, Colombia and Mexico

but I’ve expanded horizons at least
beyond a Glasshouse measure where
Tibrogargan stares morosely out to sea,
bound in cosmic silence waiting
for seasonal change in the weather
– or the next sail to appear

no, I’m wrapped in an outward
pleasure of preparation – there is
focaccia in the bread maker growing
with an eagerness only anticipation
can exact from dreams of lunch
flavoured in the eyes of love
