arrrr black az pitch

.

                  'tiz 
         not mine dialect
        'tiz the thick this
                coffee

          past mine lips
                it slid
                thick
               slowly
        unto the back uv
             that thar
          dangly thing
          in my throat
           too thick to
                spit
             i choked

               yarrrr
         at three bucks 
               the cup
           no room for
           cheeze cake
           mine gullet
    stuffed to mine teeth

            the coffee
          the waitress
           the     pitch
               gulp
            bitumen
     greasy      grog
             spoon
              yuck
