Cup, coffee

Takes great time.

Everyone will have least

One experience how make coffee.

Some aspects making cup must pinpoint

Many more clearly visible no-no’s to start off.

Every obviously wrong decision made: what not do.

Do not try make cup coffee three-quarters asleep.

Brain enough time focusing while half asleep leaves perfect set-up.

Retrieve cup, never hurts double-check position placed cup.

Cup's bottom looks mightily familiar compared hollow opening.

Successfully completed, pour coffee cup, stir any creamers.

Wisest piece advice, add any sweetener,

Quadruple-check choice selection. May

Just end up putting

Far more than

Colossal amounts


The author's comments:

No, I did not write this half asleep. However, it was a poem I made up following various types of poetry, but specifically Japanese Lantern poetry. If the poem is centered, it forms a rough diamond. Wrote this with some of my Creative Writing classmates.
