new poem : cafe cubano

café cubano

what probability studies exist to show the increased chance
of a stove top cafetera exploding?

it’s tobacco-tinted syrup coating the walls in small specks
of whispers running down, find each other, form widening
streams of tiny voices, yelling

I was only making an espresso because you asked me
and, with oiled pools gathering in the stove’s recesses,
I realize I do not love you
