Cold seeps into my legs, as I sip my coffee and smoke,

Christmas is almost here,

And I think of a kiss we shared the other night,

Like raspberry sherbet cool, soft and delicious.

After ten years, I still have a boyish crush on you,

And delight in your affection.

The work day beckons, and the dog stares me down,

We both know he is not so patiently waiting for food.

And I know soon I should wake you up, ask you if you want coffee,

even though we both know you do.
