Coffee Stains and Cigarettes

Signed, with love, an enemy

then the edges burnt with a 2 dollar cigarette lighter

and stained all over by coffee I bought just for this

which I won’t drink because I can’t stand the taste yet

Now holding papyrus soaked in secrets

unearthed from the Valley of Kings

in a landlocked kitchen, standing there

I start to look for an ocean

red or blue or whatever else

It’s the last thing I need

I’ve already got the bottle

Something a bit different, maybe. Cheers!
