He Sips Coffee From a Straw


He Sips Coffee From a Straw

Debby Sorensen Carlson

He sips coffee from a straw

in faded yellow light, alone and

unaware that anyone even notices

his abstract delight or mellow musings.



His words rumble on now, low and slow;

speaking of times when he stood tall

before professors and students alike

waiting to breath in his very essence.


Those around strain to hear

just a bit of his life, waiting for the moment

when the light finds his eyes again,

and that final drop of coffee is gone.
