Testing the Temperature

I almost slipped into your cup of coffee

aroma was sweet the beans so dark

Who could blame me for walking on the rim

Dipping my pinky from time to time

Taking such chances in testing the temperatures

I only did well in catching myself in time

Catching myself before

The temperature changed everything to liquid.

This tells me how much you looove your coffee. But it's best not to swim in it. Just sip it and enjoy :) Your imagination is great :)

Hot stuff, Ashe, chorus all at BBP ;>)
For our FT, this conjures an invitation to coffee made especially inviting through metaphor. It's effective and, we sense, very exciting. Applause!

Very aromatic and tasteful poem. My interpretation would be - relate "pinky" to lips to test the temperature. You got a nice hold of time and did well before life get liquidated.... :) Sweet poem.

I'm with Ivan. It's a fun, interesting poem, but the only way that I can make sense out of the last line is if I picture you as a sugar cube.

Strange, though vivid, depictions, I don't know what the scene is about, or where the poet wants to lead the reader to, but the feel of this poem is that something very interesting is happening, something sad but in a strange way also hopeful, the poet tells a story of feelings, and that comes through very strong in this remarkable, beautiful story,
so full of life it is.
