From Depresso To Espresso (a poem)

by Adam Jenkins on November 09, 2018
From depresso to espresso - Coffee Gator stovetop espresso maker on Amazon
When you’re running on fumes and in need of a lift
and you’re generally feeling depresso’d,
Then your shortcut to putting more spring in your step
is a classic Italian espresso

But it’s raining outside and your umbrella's bust,
wouldn’t stand half a chance in this twister
It’s coffee you need, it’s essential, a must
But you’re miles from the nearest barista

‘If only’, you curse, to your foolish past-self,
You’d have taken the time to prepare
And sat willing and waiting on a quiet kitchen shelf
Just at the foot of the stairs...

...was a simple machine that could make dreams come true,
And whip up a shot in a flash
With no need to even put on your shoes,
And saving you plenty of cash

A Gator moka does all this and more,
It’s your friendly domestic hero
Just for simple espresso, or you can pour,
Lattes, flat whites, cappuccinos

So don’t hang about or procrastinate
Don’t expect stock to hang around
At these prices tomorrow might just be too late
So click on the button right now

From zero to hero in five seconds flat
You’ll never get anything lesser
With Gator you’re guaranteed far more than that:
More smiles and coffee that’s quite simply better

“One of the pleasures of meeting Andrea Cladis’s poems is how they balance a wealth of particulars with a strong feeling for the largest of questions: what am I doing here?” – Baron Wormser, former Poet Laureate of Maine “This beautifully crafted collection of poetry portrays the song of Life with the intimacy and a vulnerability of what it means to be human. She captures the authentic voice of worship, connection and love and shares its bounty with the reader to enjoy.”- Tina DeMarco, www.memoirmuse.com“Her unbridled praise of God and His creation is both infectious and full of wonder and wisdom into what it means to be alive.” – Karen Osborn, author of Centerville, The River Road, and Between Earth & Sky. http://www.karenosborn.net/“This collection of poems is an enjoyable experience of a wide range of emotions…Simply, the depth of a poet’s soul—speaking to souls who also cherish the worth of written word—is a beautiful glimpse into a heart that isn’t afraid to take time to feel." – Kate Hertz, scholar of British Literature “This book is a meditation on life experienced and life observed. Reading it is an emotional journey hand crafted by an author skilled in word choice and informed by a unique level of transparency of thought and emotion.” – Phil Walker, Computer Specialist
