The Fifty Cent Tour

the waiter

the way you
stir your coffee
makes the blood rush from
my head
the come hither
twirl
of that fortunate spoon
and
I'm bringing
breakfast
to
your bed

red lipstick
caffeine kisses
your heart jumps, so quick
the hit
my kingdom
resides
on the rim of your world
and
I'm waiting
captive
to
your sip

  5. Now that's clever. Apart from being a a very enjoyable poem, the title plays on our understanding of its double meaning.

  16. I saw your name is Rene and had to visit. Dropping in from dVerse. My name is Renee as well, just a different spelling. I like this and no, never too late to blog. This is my second year (I think) and I just turned 60. I'm enjoying it and I hope you do as well.
