MEASURING LIFE-a poem {Sun, 1-7-18}

Life is measured out
in coffee spoons
as J. Alfred Prufrock said
in his love song
quoting T.S. Eliot
I’m sure
and it is true

As soon as the morning cup
is empty, or “all”
as they used to say
at The Dutch Kitchen
which is now itself “all”

I begin to plan for mid-morning
a caffeinated Phoenix
“rising with healing in his wings”
as Brother Charles might sing

But isn’t a coffee spoon
a better measuring device
than anything else

save hugs?
