Coffee Shop Talk

A crush betrays you –
your heart turns your face red
as you laugh off the truth 
like a child who just 
pulled his hand out 
of the cookie jar 
mommy told him 
not to touch before dinner.

Your lukewarm coffee sits
waiting beneath your shy chin,
desperate for another chance
to be thought of,
to be bought with the tongue
and enjoyed like water
to a desert rose – 
your countenance sharing it’s subtle

shade of color – pink like blush;
red like the heart’s thunder.
