Ode to Coffee

That first sip is heaven
(No sugar, one milk);
It flows down my throat like liquid silk.
Though the mug warms my fingers,
My thoughts are confined
Until its scent clears the fog from my mind.

Now I can think straight
And greet those I pass
Without the feeling of being harassed.
Now I am ready
To take on the day.
My only concern is tooth decay.

    Just control the pH level in your mouth. Oral bacteria convert glucose in sugar into pyruvic acid. Expunge those metabolic wastes, and your tooth enamel has a fighting chance. You have written about coffee very well here.
