Instant poetry

The inside of my notebook
Is a tepid mug of dirty water
Slightly blackened by a spoon of coffee

An attempt to add colour and flavour with sour milk has failed
Curd flakes dance around the edge
Jostling for position

I put the lukewarm liquid to my lips
I have nothing else to quench my infinite thirst
The tastelessness traces the inside of my mouth
And I gag on its nothingness

The regurgitated aftertaste is all that I have left
And I remember once more
How I hate weak coffee
And instant poetry
