Latte lust

How bad is coffee

how bad is it for my bones and brain

does it sharpen or dull

strengthen or weaken

will you make me shake or seize up

blunt my senses

or help them breathe better?

The fact that I take sugar surely shortens my life span

a pollution of the soul

a voluntary poisoning

all in the seeking of sweetness.

My teeth cry out

clamouring for a well deserved respite

from this sickly invasion.

Yet I can’t seem to cease sprinkling this toxic taste bud tingling torture

over all my drinks

and I sometimes wonder

whether I should have never started drinking coffee

as it does me no good.
