ebony beans spilled into the grinder
offered up a thick dark aroma
as the gears spun
bringing Ethiopia's natural abundance
one step closer to my prescripted dose
of the oil topped elixir so necessary to
socially acceptable A.M. interactions

Thanks Anders. Pretty sure I've funded more than a few coffee producing countries, supporting my morning habit!
