Coffee Don’t Give No Wings

I have this dream that if I only
drink enough coffee
some switch in me will flicker to the on position
my eyes will open, my tie will straighten—
and maybe my allergies will go away—
But coffee can’t do that
can’t make time go no faster than it’s already goin’
can’t make morning into noon then afternoon
I can drink cup after cup, espresso shots all around
But come out in the same spot as I’m in right now.
