Cappuccino
by
Norma Wightman

Savor the frothy,
sugar-edged foam
followed by bitter
espresso.
What genius
discovered that
steam injected into
bland milk turned
vapid liquid into
silky froth that
perfectly lightens the
dark side of coffee?

Love the subtle implications of light vs dark to the delight of the taster's tongue. Nicely done Norma.
