Does it mark its line
on the edge of my cup
somewhere between satisfaction and longing?
Should I top it off with cream and sugar
or just drink it bitterly down?
…or perhaps find a smaller cup?
Can it be measured?
At what tenth of a microlitre
do I find that I am
more full than empty?
And precisely how more much is needed to reach overflowing?
Is there a fraction
to be found
half full and half empty?
