Hot Coffee (1973)

Hot Coffee

by Marc Mangel

the goodness of hot coffee

on a cold night

tattered by rain

is forever established in

the anarchy of


perhaps too the wondrousfiliyt

of coffee

hot and black seething


steaming as it will

is strengthened

by the durility of


alone and coffee are

something better than horse

and carriage or

bean soup and sandwich

a way to fight

the insanity

in which our heads

must dwell


January 1973
