PERK LOVE    

SLOWLY,
                LOWLY,
           BURBLES RISE.
WAITING EARS,
                                  HAPPY SIGHS...
FIRST SIGNS,
             FIRST SOUNDS
                           THAT COFFEE GROUNDS,
                                                                      HEATING WATER
                     SOON WILL MERGE,
                                  WILL MINGLE,
                                                      MELD,
                                                          INTERTWINE
     BECOMING SOMETHING NEAR DIVINE.

ROUNDLY,
                      SOUNDLY,
       DRIBBLES  FLOW.
MOISTENED FILTER,
                                      POT BELOW...
PERK SONG,
     PERK SIGHT
                 BRING SWEET DELIGHT.
                                                            WAITING LIPS,
        TINGLING TONGUE...
                          DARKLING WET,
                                                     HOT,
                                                            MELLOW FEAST
COME SOOTHE MY SOUL AND CALM MY BEAST.
