The Day After

As I make my morning espresso

it ends up all over my white counters

reminding me of how I am a pretty messy "cooker".

After I make my espresso

my kitchen looks like I just made

thanksgiving dinner.

No matter how hard I try

there are

black speckles


black rings of coffee

all over the place and even on my white robe.

Just ask my hubby

as he wipes under his cup every morning

checking for the evidence.

And there it is.
