Orange juice waits on the counter

I should drink it - it's good for me
and the vitamin C is something I
need so much more of in my system.
But the acidity reminds me of you
and staring at it is more entertaining

than I expected. Much the way

you and I would be in a coffee shop
chatting, rambling, coffeeing all day
gathering an audience the longer we
stayed, sitting together plainly.

Orange juice waits on the counter

I know I should drink it, but I'd rather
dump it down the sink and question
why the hell I bought it in the first place.
