a sign of age

I like black coffee 

a knowingness stirs within me 

(I am growing old) 

I never liked it this way before 

maybe it’s a sign

I used to watch white haired women 

sip their black coffee with dinner and think


but now 

I am one of them 

I gulp down my breakfast blend 


I guess I like the taste of bitterness 

in my mouth
