sugared remedies

the spoon twists those sweet sugars
into a splendid, caffeinated remedy
that will pin my eyes open
and push away sleep with shaky hands
leaving black bands playing horseshoe
around my eyes,
their baggage, oh the things they’ve
seen, before i tuned out the world
and found myself immersed in
the coffee in front of me
