Cold Coffee Chronicles

Poetry, fiction, children’s stories, and more

Suddenly, my friends- 2013

Suddenly, my friends

Have become ephemeral 

As the flowers of late 


Our home was built

On top of each other.

The sex sounds that crept

Through the cardboard walls

Like little glimmers of light

Are muted. 

We stand in different leaky

Homes that keep us

From bleeding into one another. 

I have never felt so solitary

As now. 

I have never missed the clumps

Of hair pasted to the shower

Stall until I saw hygiene. 

The sweat of a sofa stained

By pizza sauce and beer

Never meant stability

Until I rented a clean one. 

My bedroom is adorned

With white paint and my

Step grandma’s picture.

About Me

An English diarist and naval administrator. I served as administrator of the Royal Navy and Member of Parliament. I had no maritime experience, but I rose to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and King James II through patronage, diligence, and my talent for administration.
