Mama’s Coffee (Ode to John Coltrane) ☕️

Alaya Carnes, ’26
Nyla Bishop, ’25

I miss momma’s coffee 

Brewed in 

Filtered out


Smells like home

Deep in heart

Kitchen in melodic flames


Cream and sugar

Splendid Splenda spliced, sliced,

And slipped in


I miss momma’s coffee


Slight hums 

When soft sizzles 

Hits the tongue 


I remember mama’s coffee


With Deep brown stained cups

She makes her mark 


But I would complain 


Coffee changes you

Coffee changes me

Coffee changes us 


I would complain 

when Momma drunk her coffee


Now I would give anything

To see the the softened steam

On sunshine’s lips 


One more time.


Yes I miss momma’s coffee 

I miss it so, so much


But never will I miss it.

More than I miss her.
