I.
I try to recreate
the memories of black sleep
in a coffee cup.
II.
rings under my eyes,
rings on my textbook pages,
both caused by coffee.
III.
I stay up all night.
Drinking coffee to learn
and learning to drink coffee.
VI.
I drink coffee now
Hoping one-day to be offered
A cup of hemlock.

I was up late reading about Socrates, drinking coffee, and so this poem was born

Favorite Quote:
First dentistry was painless.
Then bicycles were chainless,
Carriages were horseless,
And many laws enforceless.

Next cookery was fireless,
Telegraphy was wireless,
Cigars were nicotineless,
And coffee caffeineless.

Soon oranges were seedless,
The putting green was weedless,
The college boy was hatless,
The proper diet fatless.

New motor roads are dustless,
The latest steel is rustless,
Our tennis courts are sodless,
Our new religion — godless.

"...drinking coffee to learn and learing to drink coffee."   -such an amazing statement there.
