Caffeine Chasity

Caffeine Chasity

“That caffeinated concoction
Left me jittery. At the risk
Of incurring your lambast
I’m going into caffeine abstinence.”
She replies, “Sounds like a Catholic
Means of insomnia control.”
“I am chaste when it comes to caffeine.”
“Only with caffeine?”
“Also with white bread.”
“Touche. But why don’t you
Put sugar in your coffee?”
“The sugar overwhelms the flavor
Of the coffee.”
“So does the milk you swamp it with.”
“The atmosphere of this place
Is all I need for sweetener.”
“What keeps
You coming back? Surely the sashay
of my sassafras lilt
Or of my southerly denim isn’t it.”
“On your bad hair days
You have the cutest scowl.”
She replies, “Well I am tickled pink.
You have made me the happiest
Barista girl in town.”
 “Yes! I passed the test again.
What got you in such a sunny mood today?”
“Blame it on breakfast. Hot chocolate
And macaroons do it to me every time.”
