Important Things Like Drinking Coffee

i used to take my coffee with
four scoops of sugar
and
plenty of cream.

light-and sweet, please
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . i’d say.

now i take it: less-than one scoop
of sugar
and
just a dab
. . . . . . . . . of cream.

soon enough, i’ll be drinking it
black. because
the
bitterness
seems to me
just a little more
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . honest.
