Two Poems

a capella: like Inuit throat-singing
after Bjork

did I

leave the coffee pot on
when I left
did you turn on
the coffee pot
for the guests
to be really on
I shouldn’t leave
without more coffee
would you make more
if I were late
with the guests
did I guess too late
so the latecomers
made out
with my coffee
would you
please have coffee
with me
if I come
early before you leave
if you leave
would you take the coffee pot
or would you take
all my coffee
