Bland taste to quench my 

Thirst of impulsive remarks 

Gas station coffee 


The author's comments:

This came off the top of my head and it weirdly sounds good, considering I wrote it late at night. The topic of coffee may sound shallow, but it could have a deeper meaning. I wrote this poem unintentionally, but I think it's my best haiku yet.

Enjoy.

I wrote Colors of Coffee, but don't tell nobody!

Yeah, I saw that haiku! It’s really good, I didn’t even realize it was there until I already submitted this. Just and FYI for all who may be thinking I copied it I swear I didn’t lol. Funny coincidence :)
