“Churros con choco y cortado” – Alabang, 30 April 2016

drowning
my grief
in my
coffee,
the gathering
clouds
mirroring
the ones
in the
sky.

drop of
salt
tainting the
sweetness;
making the
morning
oh so
bitter.

and a song
keeps playing
in my
head
and the
memories
conjured by
melody
sting to
the core.

staring
into my
cup,
seeking answers
from the
bitter dregs
within,
and sigh.
