Steam rises off muddled liquid, thick in ivory cups.
Spittle specks poke holes in frothy foam.
Some speaking in hushed tones and others in jovial spirits,
fellowship encircles the room-
low lit with acoustic guitars strumming in the background.
There are friends and acquaintances,
meetings and informal parties.
Every individual with their own story,
brought together by this common interest,
the idea of bonding through the energy granted
by this intoxicating bean.
Happy National Coffee Day—September 29, 2017
