Prayer Over Coffee
Fossil fuel of my soul
Black light of my veins
Course through me
Sharpen my senses
Dull my pain
Deepen the penetrating gaze
-- Mr. Gobley

You've heard of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, of course.
Did you know there's an American Coffee Ceremony? It is performed thusly:
1) Brew your first cup of the day, and pour it into a vessel of your choice;
2) Lift the vessel in the direction of the rising sun;
3) Take your first swig; and
4) Loudly exclain, "GOD, I needed that!"

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion,
It is by the beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed,
The hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning,
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
