Blackboard Special: Grounds for a Connection/Aurora Phoenix


she drinks her coffee black
no nonsense as her stride
hint of caramel flavored
reflecting her soul’s sweetness
twinkling amber from her eyes

in every sip, she imbibes
the comfort of a lazy Sunday brunch
each waft is aromatic communion
with dislodged or misplaced souls
writing their universal place

syllables take heat
above steaming mugs
transpose fulminating truths
transfix the globe
