    Ode to Black Coffee

    Ode to Black Coffee

    The nectar of midnight oil, burning. Deep swirls of night and pale moon stare blankly at a computer screen, blind to the words before me. A clock, counting down to the zero hour and not half done, but tired and heavy eyelids give way to temptation, sinking. Frivolous mistress of the bean, calling to me, inviting.

    Writers Block

    For one split second, it's like everything's right there, and I can see everything just the way it is. But then it's like waking up from a dream and everything slips away, and the memory's come back. But when I can see everything, and my heart and mind click and fit together, it's like looking at the most beautiful sunset, or watching a hawk fly or maybe just looking out over a snow covered lawn. It's diving into the ocean to see all the colorful fish and the great reefs. It's like flying, everywhere. And you can see it all, but then you wake up. Then it's gone. But not really because it's all still there. In your heart and mind, just out of sync, waiting to come back. Waiting for that click.
