“I have measured out my life with coffee spoons.”  T.S. Eliot

To Have

To have and to hold
that objet d’promesse,
panacea of the hours
since the Edenic dawn,
the reason, the will,
to live the moments and
scale walls as mountains,
or suffer drudge in strides,
glorious aroma of life,
that first fix sip,
le cafe.

Note: objet d’promesse (Fr.) – object of promise; le cafe (Fr.) – the coffee.
