Coffee, Then Thinking

Let’s establish something right now and real quick:

Don’t share your thoughts until coffee’s dripped.

And don’t expect small talk before coffee’s sipped.

I’m a slow riser and mean to keep it that way.

I don’t like thinking when I’m not awake.

Have a great idea?

I’m sure it can wait.

Don’t let it mess up the best part of my day.

Fade into the background and gnaw on your tongue.

You’ll still get your words in before today’s done.

But right now is time for peace and hot brew.

When I want your opinions, I’ll come and find you.
