I Like It Strong.

 
I'm scrambling out the door  
with my double café latte.    
I'm pushing through downtown  
traffic to make it to work by 5.    
 
The chaos is exhilarating.    
But I have my latte, and I always  
make it on time, somehow.    
 
He fell in love with me all over again,  
a while back, and bought me  
an expresso machine, and I love it.    
I don't brew pots of coffee  
anymore, or use pods.    
 
A café latte is an expresso  
and steamed milk, & some froth.    
Sometimes, if I'm feeling sweet,  
I'll add 3 shots of  
butter rum flavor, or carmel.    
But usually not.    
 
I love the strong nutty notes  
of the expresso,  
its flavorful crema bubbles,  
and a little froth.    
I finish it by 8,  
but the jolt takes me to 11 o'clock.      
 
The highlight of my whole evening  
is catching a little break  
and sitting there in the yard with it  
when everything's quiet. This love.
