The Caffeinated Week
by Valya Dudycz Lupescu
Monday’s cup is the darkest roast,
to battle with the weekend’s ghost.
Tuesday’s coffee is triple shot,
like dragons’ blood served boiling hot.
Wednesday’s coffee has extra bite—
Medusa’s venom, black as night.
Thursday is Turkish, mythic and rich,
coy in the cup, it will charm and bewitch.
Friday’s latte has a touch of the Fae,
full of anticipation and promise of play.
Saturday’s mocha is gratefully savored,
steamed with intrigue and brazenly flavored.
The French Press on Sunday is carefully timed—
short to steep, slow to drink, and soon left behind.
