Coffee War

I forged coffee in my
Chemex this afternoon
unapologetically
robust
Created so to act as
a buttress against
the merciless forces
of fatigue grinding
at my defenses
and reinforcements wait
in airtight Tupperware
for the scalding baptism
that will send them
pouring into the breach
but, alas,
the enemy has
reached my chamber
