how much fuss; for just one drink?

any time
guests would
come to visit
my family's home
they would be exposed
Green Absinthe Dark Chocolate Cordials
to the spectacle of my brothers
performance preparing
mayan coffee

s
   t
       e
          p
     
   after
        anxiety
    riddled
 
                  s
               t
           e
        p

to not only create
the perfect show
but cup of fiery
java

for those of you
who know me
-- know, that i am not
a coffee drinker
having only
drunken
4 times
in my

.e. .n. .t. .i. .r. .e.

now, the preparation
it takes to make
an absinthe drink
is right up my alley
with toasted
and melted sugar
crystals coating
my tongue

save the alcohol
for another
day
