La Bête Noir


His pre-timed growl
my alarm clock
hauling me by my hair
to pay justifiable homage
fragrant musk
steamy promises
making my veins twitch
for ribbed handle grip
like a junkie anticipating
needle's prick
deep-throated scalding splash
guzzling ecstasy
lapping  last drop
quivering on  rim
leaves me hyped
begging for
cup of Joe

*Interesting factoid of the week.The video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas included an inaccessible minigame later dubbed the Hot Coffee mod. I don't know why that's important. I may have overdone the coffee this morn.

Weighing in at a trim 55 words this post is part of this week's Friday Flash 55 and was written in response to the Three Word Wednesday prompt: growl, hype, justify. Drop by these wonderful blogs to see what others wrote, or join in the fun yourself.


  1. A cup of Joe never sounded so good..Jae ;)

  2. Hmmm. This is what addiction is like before it turns on a person. It's no accident people get hooked.

  3. Hooked on Joe I see :-) - well written

  4. WOW! I was surprised to learn I was reading about coffee... I thought it was an everyday Joe!

  5. "I would gladly give up coffee for Sanka, even Sanka, Bianca, for you." C Porter
