Time is short. I’m left either to write an unbearably long article that hasn’t enjoyed the sundry benefits of editing (1)… or to take another approach. Let’s call it, review Haiku.
Peet’s Viennese Blend
While it’s lovingly crafted,
Its finish is lost.
Intelligentsia Coffee’s Nepenthe Organic Blend
Its fragrance beckons,
Distilled, yet sweetly assured.
Like a vintage port.
Boca Java’s Sumatran Sunset
Earthy? No, barnyard…
And not a civet in sight.
(1) In the vein of Blaise Pascal’s, “I have made this letter longer than usual, only because I have not had the time to make it shorter.”
