Cheap Iced Coffee

Does this town need a third Dunkin Donuts? Who needs

that much mediocre coffee? Will it stop me from going?

How much coffee equals eight hours? How else will I

stay awake? What? I’m supposed to sleep?

Stay still a third of my life? If that’s the case, then why

are energy shots front and center at every gas station counter?

Is this too on the nose? Am I not getting to the point? Is there

something I had to say? How deep

can a poem written in a Dunkin Donuts be? Maybe bad coffee

produces bad poets.
