DECEMBER

To watch the one I wuv the most

Top Trenta Tazos, pour rich dark roast.

My misto with mocha, refilled  — my thrill —

Returning to bar: he works, I chill.

Semester’s sealed: for winter break

Iambic tetrameter, a piece of cake.

He awes with salty caramel drinks,

His stanza fills, his guest just winks.

I’m shaking it off with Taylor Swift

I wear new headphones, his Christmas gift.

His focused countenance, his polished stance;

If he weren’t working, I’d ask to dance.

We’d turn to the tea bags, I’d hold his heart —

If I could do it (the dancing part) —

I’d turn him around, his dimples his brand,

Feel the hem of his apron like holding hands.
