Waking Up Is Hard To Do

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at www.octpowrimo.com.

    No, you don’t need professional help, just coffee (with a side order of tea? Why not?) – Mine is “Italian Espresso Roast” (roasted dark black, but not bitter like Starbucks’) bought on line from a roaster in NY, created, they say, to satisfy the old Italian men in the neighborhood who wanted it “just like at home in Rome”. I do it half decaff (As much of it as I drink, I’d be bouncing off the cieling with full caffeine.) I do it in a Mr. Coffee Espresso machine and take it straight.

    Sounds good!

    I go for Earl Grey (black), or just water. I used to have coffee sometimes at weekends, back when I had a hob stove which I could put the coffee pot on. Alas, no more. I used LavAzza espresso. By the mug 😉 (black, with a pinch of salt to take the bitterness out, like the Italians do)

  3. I like your poem!! I’m a coffee girl but put vanilla cream flavoring into it…

      Hi Kristi! Nice to see you over here :=)
      Vanilla makes almost everything taste better! Though, I must admit, Peppermint Mocha creamer is one of my downfalls.
