sex and coffee
by Alexandra Moss
i was sitting in dunkin' donuts last night
wiping iced coffee with skim off my leg
when danny asked me
if i did anything right.
i told him i'd handled my donut just fine.
it was only the coffee
and the relationship
danny stroked his beard
i'm great with mundane things
i'm fine with final things
i only ruin everything that matters,
i only fuck up sex and coffee.
