Total eclipse of the heart

A perfect cup of coffee is like a
a total eclipse      rare but worth waiting
for       just like today     though the sun is beam-
ing and not a cloud in the sky.      Love it.
Days like this the flotsam and jetsam of
life just falls away   
                      leaving pure kernels
of peace and tranquility.       Pandemics
are tough on the soul but we made it through.
Then all of a sudden Patsy goes Great
Gatsby on me

             “The heat. The heat. I can’t
take another day of this heat.” “Cool down,”
I tell her, “this too will pass as they say.
Chill out. The Iceman Cometh b’fore you know.”
But if looks could kill I swear I’d be gone.
