Mukka, Mukka, on the stove. Who’s the fairest of them all.

December 5, 2010 at 9:10 am


From the belly of my beloved stovetop espresso maker

a cone of steam that never makes it to the glass carafe

shoots outward at my wall

or toaster

or into the atmosphere of my galley kitchen

from a tiny metal peephole

begging me to part my bangs

and move my stray blonde strands of hair

behind my ears


lean in.

This morning I will enjoy the

blessings of organically grown

coffee beans


the drug I still bow to

and have myself

a stovetop facial

    This was wonderful to read on such a brutally cold morning here in South Florida. I’m raising my coffee mug to you — Happy Holidays!
