I've been coping
with cocoa

"only 90 calories"
it boasts-

I wonder
what's really
in there?

my white
styrofoam cup
obliviously
insults the world

the tear
of a thin wrapper
reveals a heap of dark dust
transformed
by steaming hot water
from the mineral-crusted tap

chocolate powder
struggles to float
in the vortex
imposed by a flimsy
wooden stirrer

I pause
to
take a sip
of the chaos
reveling
in its warmth
