I Wanna Get Drunk At Think Coffee

In 2014, coffee shops across New York City decided to take the definition of a brew bar all too seriously. Below, our resident poet laureate, Ariel, whose work has been described as “Susan Howesian” and “criticism as form of poetry,” (citation pending) meditates upon a subject previously limited to the superfluity of Tao Lin’s literary musings.

I MEAN NO DISRESPECT TO THE ESTABLISHMENT,

but my style is to bring store-delivered wine a camp flask- 

my party will provide the support through the purchase of my partner(s).

 

I want to debate- 

not on any stage nor for any 

unengaged audience;

my guest patrons and self will be the only roaster.

 

It will undoubtedly start slow-

only after a few

“how-do-you-do’s”

and

sip – one, two

will the fun really begin. 

 

I intend for no 

pre-curation of subject, 

only the spontaneous remembrance

of topic by context.

CHOICE OF COMPANY IS IMPERATIVE;

CHOICE OF COMPANIONSHIP CRITICAL.

 

-“If you hang out with shit, 

you become shit.”

 

There is no urgency 

in resolution –

of an issue, 

in fact this is distain-

to expect a definite

is to the realization of the disillusioned.

Burdensome is the deadline of finalization of thought-

one cannot expect to function 

with robust trueness if the weight of deprivation 

wears on your shoulders. 

 

It makes for bad posture.

About Author

airschl Gauraa is excited for me to write a small biography about myself -- I imagine my professors share her level of excitement at the thought I might turn in my homework on time. As for both I think I will sip another beer and hope a security breach on the server will crash the system and give me more time to think of something funny to describe me.
