Before I drink my coffee

before I drink my coffee

I can smell its scent 

I know

you're probably in the kitchen

making your favorite toasts


I can hear the dripping

the fume pervades the air


are you still at home?

or have you already gone?


it drips and drips

the cat 

has spilled the milk
