Milky and Sweet

I like my coffee milky and sweet.

No bitterness. No darkness.

I like how the creamy milk

Swims in the coffee.

And I like how the sugar

Disappears instantaneously.

I like my coffee milky and sweet

So it's pleasant enough

To soothe my palette.

I don't drink it to stay sane

Or to stay awake.

I drink to enjoy. I drink for pleasure.

I drink for the journey

Not for the results.

I like my coffee milky and sweet

To sweeten my day

And brighten my nights

Warm or icy, I don't mind

At least when I'm alone

It's just my mug, my creamer, my sugar,

and I.
